Sport says Real president Florentino Perez was willing to invest €100 million in bringing Neymar to Madrid this summer. But the Brazilian has his heart set on joining Barca when he chooses to leave for Europe.
Florentino was willing to make Neymar only behind Cristiano Ronaldo as the highest earner at Real and pay DOUBLE the fee Barca had agreed with Santos. He also was willing to split Neymar's image rights 70:30 in the player's favour - again a far better deal than the 50:50 all Real players have with the club, including Ronaldo.
However, Neymar is committed to a Barca pre-contract agreed in 2011.
