Battle of Neymar continues

MADRID - As Paris St Germain gear up for their blockbuster Champions League last-16 first leg tie against Real Madrid tomorrow, much of the media attention has focused on whether their most prized asset Neymar will eventually make a sensational move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Brazilian became the most expensive player of all time last August when PSG swiped him from Barcelona, although Real have coveted the forward since he was 13-years-old.

Real president Florentino Perez recently said his side tried to sign Neymar before he joined rivals Barca in 2013 and reiterated his desire to bring the Brazilian to Madrid.

Neymar has scored a remarkable 28 goals in 27 games in all competitions for the runaway Ligue 1 leaders, although he has not always cut a happy figure in Paris.

His furious dispute with strike partner Edinson Cavani in September over the right to take set pieces reared its head again last month when the Brazilian refused to allow the Uruguayan to take a penalty against Dijon that would have made him the club's all-time top scorer.
