Madrid 'swap James for Neymar'

Real Madrid are reportedly ready to sacrifice Napoli target James Rodriguez for Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar.

Negotiations to take James to Napoli are thought to be in the final stages, but Mundo Deportivo claims he could yet be PSG-bound.

That is because Madrid are preparing a mega offer of €130m plus the Colombian or Gareth Bale for Neymar.

However, the newspaper believes a return to Barcelona remains the Brazilian’s priority.
