Reports have suggested that Neymar is now unhappy at Paris Saint-Germain and would like a return to Spain, although is has been claimed that the Ligue 1 have been 'banned' from selling the Brazilian attacker.
Real Madrid have not signed a player of "Galactico" proportions since the acquisition of Welsh global Gareth Bale in the summer of 2013 with only the arrival of James Rodriguez after the 2014 Brazil World Cup for 75 million euro coming close. However, reports suggest Neymar could leave Paris after less than a year, and Coutinho addressed the matter of his national team-mate potentially becoming a club team-mate.
"Neymar's injury is unfortunate, but I'm convinced that he'll be back for the summer and we can count on other very good players".
Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane tried to avoid questions about "a player who plays for another club" on Friday, but he did say he believed that such a price would soon be entirely possible. On the 400 million, they paid 220 million and when they bought me they paid 72.
A return to Barcelona has been mooted, as has a move to Real Madrid who have done little to quell speculation.
Despite having only joined the French giants during the summer from Barcelona, Neymar is reportedly unsettled in France and wishes that he had no left his former club. Neymar missed PSG's last 16 loss to Real Tuesday after undergoing surgery on a broken foot in Brazil last week.
