Real Madrid could have signed Santos star Neymar for an amazing €60,000, it has been revealed!

El Confidencial says Neymar spent time at Real during president Florentino Perez's previous reign, training at the club's HQ and holding talks about a move to Madrid.

In 2006, Neymar spent two weeks at Real and Santos were willing to sell for just €60,000.

But after Florentino's departure, the new regime believed Neymar was not worth the money and passed on the deal.

Real are again in talks with Neymar - who is now rated at over €30 million by Santos.
