INSIDER: Real Madrid president Florentino wants Hazard AND Neymar (but the board...)

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is at odds with his board of their pursuit of PSG star Neymar.

Florentino remains determined to bring the former Barcelona ace Neymar back to Spain this summer. However, his fellow board members believe they need to focus elsewhere ahead of the summer market.

Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda, speaking on El Chiringuito, revealed: "Florentino is obsessed with Neymar, although the board does not advise buying him."

And while last week Neymar's father denied any contact with Barca about a return to the Blaugrana for the Brazil attacker, on Florentino Inda added: "There are contacts with the player's father, who asks for €40m (in bonuses).

"So the president wants to throw the house out the window to bring Neymar and (Eden) Hazard."

Indeed, Inda insists Florentino's pursuit of Neymar won't affect his plans for Chelsea star Hazard.
