Real Madrid are ready to make the Brazil star Naymar the highest paid player in football

Real Madrid are prepared to offer €350 million (£302m/$393m) to sign Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar, according to Sport.

Neymar would receive a contract that pays him €45m per season, giving him a higher wage than even former team-mate Lionel Messi.

Meanwhile, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has agreed to replace Max Allegri at Juventus, according to reports in Italy.
