2. ‘Neymar will join Real Madrid’ says his Brazil teammate Marcelo
Real Madrid assistant captain Marcelo Vieira believes Neymar will join the La Liga giants in the near future. The left-back was speaking ahead of the clash between the Los Blancos and PSG set to take place at Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night. The two play together in the national team of Brazil.
“I think Neymar will play for Real Madrid one day,” Marcelo told Esporte Interativo.
“Would Neymar fit at Real Madrid? He would fit, for sure.
“It would be great if he came to Real Madrid.
“In my opinion, the great players have to play at this club.”
Real president Florentino Perez said a few weeks ago that he expects Neymar to join Madrid very soon if he wants to win the Ballon d’Or award.
“It’s difficult to see who will take the leadership away from Cristiano [Ronaldo] and [Lionel] Messi,” said Perez.
“Being at Madrid would make it easier for Neymar to win it [the Ballon d’Or]. Madrid is a club that gives big players what they need.”
