Barcelona are reportedly faking Neymar pursuit just to keep Lionel Messi happy

The Paris Saint-Germain star has made it clear he is hoping to leave the Parisians in this window, and has been linked with a move to Real as well as his former club Barcelona. Thirteen-years on, Real are still chasing the Brazilian forward.

Real Madrid have spent more than 300 million euros this summer as they look to forget their trophyless campaign previous year, and that worked wonders in their opening league match on the weekend when exactly zero of their new recruits started in the 3-1 win at Celta Vigo.

Back in 2006, the Santiago Bernabéu outfit were keen on landing a then 14-year-old Neymar after he impressed during a summer trial.

"He's well advised by his representatives, so far be it for me to tell him what to do".

Santos blocked a move at that stage, with Teixeira saying of the role he played in that saga: "He was blown away by the "Galacticos", but in time we were able to get hold of his father and make him an offer that earned him a million dollars".

The defending La Liga champions have reportedly offered PSG a player-plus-cash deal involving Philippe Coutinho, however that was immediately rejected by the French side, who are sticking to their asking price of €200m. "It was a hard decision that I had to make on my own, but it was what had to be done at that moment in time", added Teixeira.

PSG Sporting director Leonardo confirmed last week that talks regarding Neymar were at an advance stage, although the did not mention any club names.

"Neymar is my player and when I think of a strong team, I include him".
