Real Madrid are back in the hunt for Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar, this time looking to get him on loan, according to Diario SPORT. The option of a loan with an optional purchase clause has been rumored lately, with Barcelona as the destination. However, this loan option being put forth on the table seems to have re-ignited Madrid’s pursuit of the Brazilian.

SPORT says Florentino Pérez is very keen on the signing, despite the manager, Zinedine Zidane, not being interested and hoping to sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United.

They also say that PSG are starting to see the Neymar situation as impossible to maintain, which opens up avenues for both La Liga giants to bring the forward in. While the Parisians are said to prefer to send Neymar to Madrid, whether that actually happens depends on the player himself. Would he be willing to cross the rivalry that exists in el clásico?

Neymar already rejected Madrid when he initially signed for Barcelona. Will his stance continue?

While Barça and PSG continue negotiations, it seems that Madrid will be informed every step of the way.
