PSG set to go after Atletico Madrid's Griezmann if Neymar joins Real Madrid

- Real Madrid have not given up on signing Paris Saint Germain superstar Neymar

- The Brazil attacker joined the French League giants in the summer of 2017 in a world record fee

- However, the Galacticos are hoping to land the former Barcelona star to replace Cristiano Ronaldo

Paris Saint Germain have reportedly concluded plans to sign Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann as a replacement for Real Madrid target Neymar.

The Brazil star has been heavily linked with a move to join the Galacticos since last season after just one year in France.

Los Blancos became more desperate after losing Cristiano Ronaldo to Italian League champions Juventus in a mega deal this summer.

However, the French League champions are planning to land the 2018 World Cup winning superstar once they lose the current world's most expensive footballer.

Tribal Football quoting Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda while speaking on El Chiringuito said that: "If Real Madrid sign Neymar, PSG will need to sign a star, and they plan to sign Griezmann.

"Right now, with the crazy prices that are handled, he's not expensive."

Griezmann's current buyout clause is set at €200m. Inda also confirmed Neymar would already be a Real player if he had pushed for it this summer.

"If he had wanted, he would be at the Bernabéu," Inda revealed. "Madrid wanted him, but there was fear."

Legit.ng previously reported that Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann rejected a deal to join Manchester United this summer, and the Frenchman however sanctioned a move to Barcelona.

The 27-year-old forward is said to have agreed to join the Spanish giants in an £88 million deal instead of a move to Old Trafford according to UK Sun.

United manager Jose Mourinho wanted the French forward in the summer but he instead will move to the Catalan giants.
