Real Madrid have dropped their interest in Neymar in favor of his Paris Saint-Germain teammate Kylian Mbappe, according to the latest reports from England
Los Blancos hold a long-standing interest in the former Barcelona star, who has endured mixed fortunes in Ligue 1 since his blockbuster arrival back in 2017.
Although he has established himself as PSG’s standout performer, the 27-year-old has sustained two troubling injuries that have been keeping him out of action for quite a while.

The Brazilian could depart Parc des Princes this summer, but according to the British outlet, Daily Mail, the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu won’t be his next destination.
La Liga giants are eager to bolster their attacking options ahead of the next season, but they are looking to secure the services of Neymar’s attacking partner Kylian Mbappe instead.
The super-talented Frenchman has also found himself on Florentino Perez’s wish-list, as Los Merengues president desperately tries to find a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
