PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN want Real Madrid to include Brazilian youngster Vinicius in the deal for Neymar, according to reports.
Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has refused to rule out a move for the wantaway PSG striker before the transfer window closes.
But according to AS, Madrid immediately rejected PSG’s request to include the Brazil Under-20 star.
The 19-year-old’s name was mentioned twice during discussions between the two clubs.
Thomas Tuchel’s side allegedly view him as the “anti-Neymar” because of his commitment both on and off the pitch.
But Madrid do not want to offload the youngster – who joined them from Flamengo last summer for £38.7million.
Vinicius, who bagged just two goals last season, is under contract at the Bernabeu until 2025.
Zidane is keen to keep hold of him, but has admitted he is interested in a move for the wantaway PSG star.
He said: “Neymar is not [in our squad] but until September 2, anything can happen.
“We are with the squad that we have and we are only thinking about that.”
