Real Madrid tipped to beat PSG by Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes

Neymar leaving Barcelona a sporting gamble- PSG coach Emery

Should they make an exit from the tournament at this stage, it could spark a huge revolution at the club, with a number of players being brought in to bring more competition and quality to the squad.

Madrid have been linked with the prolific 29-year-old to refresh an attack that has struggled this season, with central striker Karim Benzema only scoring two LaLiga goals in an injury-affected campaign.

The arrival of Mbappe and Neymar at PSG for this season has contributed to Argentina global Di Maria not being guaranteed a starting berth.

He has backed Neymar to be the best in the world in a "few years" and has advised Real to secure his signature.

Both players are into their 30s, and should Madrid end the season empty-handed, there is a feeling the club will spend big in a bid to strengthen the team and fight for titles again.

Both sides possess more quality than most of Europe put together, so why are Paris Saint-Germain flourishing and Real Madrid floundering in their respective domestic leagues this season?

I haven't heard any official representative of Real say anything about Neymar.

Zinedine Zidane and his men have endured a hard run in the league this season.

Marca reported that Lewandowski's agent, Cesary Kucharski, was in regular contact with the Madrid hierarchy and suggested that Kucharski had "offered" the player to the Champions League holders. Real are now fourth in the league table with 39 points after 21 games. To achieve that, they have to beat PSG that is led by Neymar in the round of 16.

'Madrid and Barcelona wanted Kylian, but PSG have the muscle to keep him at a French club and I think the transfer happened for sporting reasons and not financial ones, and that's something new in this new European order'.
