Real Madrid are considering the possibility of bringing Neymar back to Spain, as they attempt to find a suitable replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese superstar is currently 32 years old, and has shown initial signs of slowing down, having been on a poor run of form recently. This has prompted Real to begin their search for the perfect player to replace the man who won 4 of his 5 FIFA Balon D’Ors/ Mens’ Best Player Of The Year awards while at the club.

According to several reports over the past week, Los Blancos are considering selling their talisman and building their team around Isco.

However, they are also considering a new strategy, which would involve a player who spent four years with their arch-rivals Barcelona before moving to PSG in the summer.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez recently met with Neymar’s father to discuss the possibility of bringing his son back to Spain. Whether there is any truth to this supposed meeting is unknown, but it is an interesting development considering the fact that the Brazilian sensation only moved to Paris this summer.

For now though, Neymar is said to be content with life in the French capital, having established a close bond with fellow Brazilian teammates Dani Alves, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, and Lucas Moura.

A few reports have hinted at some tension between the winger and boss Unai Emery, but the 25-year-old seems to be enjoying his football at the moment, with 11 goals in 12 appearances presenting the evidence of his brilliant start to life at the new club.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo too, is unlikely to be on a dry patch for too long, given his formidable talent. His current contract with the Galacticos expires in 2021, and with four more years to go, Real are unlikely to be in a major hurry to rush a move for Neymar just yet.
