Zidane wouldn't be surprised to see Madrid-linked Neymar leave for €400m

Neymar continues to recover from an operation to repair a broken metatarsal in Brazil

Zinedine Zidane has tipped world football's transfer fees to reach eye-watering new levels amid reports Real Madrid are considering a mega-money move for Neymar.

Barcelona are still embroiled in a financial dispute over a bonus due to Neymar last summer, which the club cancelled when they believe it became clear he was moving to PSG.

The article adds Neymar has explained he made a mistake in leaving the club, was wrong to want independence from Lionel Messi and has been disappointed by the standard of opposition in Ligue 1. "I believe it comes from the same source - his entourage".

He told reporters: "Well, I'm not going to talk about a player who is not mine". Since the acquisition of Gareth Bale in 2013 the LaLiga club have not signed a player of "Galáctico" proportions and the club have identified Neymar as the key player to lead the front line in a post-Cristiano Ronaldo era at the Santiago Bernabeu. AS has today said €400m will be the amount quoted to Real Madrid if PSG are open to sell - the problem is, they are not open to sell right now anyway.

"When Real bought me it was €72m or something like that..."

Messi has reportedly told his old pal that Barca have moved on and he isn't needed. "He could play at any club". Because he is very good.

"Real Madrid want him, of course, he wants to go, but PSG don't want to let him go".

Madrid beat a PSG side missing an injured Neymar in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash on Tuesday to confirm their place in the quarter-finals.
