Transfer Talk: Who are Sarri's targets?
The Transfer Talk panel discuss the players incoming Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri will target before the deadline.
Speculation claiming Madrid had planned to launch a bid to sign the Brazil forward intensified following Cristiano Ronaldo's £105m move from Real to Juventus.
The statement said: "In the face of the constant reports linking PSG's Neymar Jr. to our club, Real Madrid C. F. wish to clarify that the club has no intention of making any offer for the player.
"The relationship between the two clubs is extraordinary so that if at some point Real Madrid were considering signing a PSG player, the first thing the club would do would be to make an official approach."
The latest denial is the second time in 10 days Madrid have been forced to deny interest in the striker after Spanish state television channel TVE reported they had made a world-record bid for Neymar, who has no release clause in his contract.
