Real Madrid will 'sell Gareth Bale and three others' to fund sensational move for Neymar

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez will sell four of his star players to fund a sensational move to bring Neymar to the Bernabeu, it has been claimed.

According to Diario, Perez sees Neymar as the club's long-term successor to Cristiano Ronaldo, who turns 33 next February the same day the Brazilian turns 26.

Neymar's buyout clause at PSG in his first season is £177million, it rises to £195m in his second year before settling at £221m thereafter.

Perez started the savings fund with the £70.6m sale of Alvaro Morata to Chelsea this summer, but will look to ship on Gareth Bale,James Rodriguez, Karim Benzema and Raphael Varane to further bankroll a potential deal.

Los Blancos, in the best-case scenario, reportedly hope for a return of £71m for Bale, £53m for Benzema, £44m for Rodriguez — currently on loan at Bayern Munich — and the same for Varane.

Should the La Liga giants receive their top estimations, they would have £212m at their disposal — almost enough to buyout Neymar's second-year clause.

Bale is a target for Manchester United while Rodriguez could opt to make his stay in Munich permanent.
