Neymar is currently focused on the World Cup and helping his national team to reach the Last 16 round after suffering against Switzerland and Costa Rica. The forward can finally play after several months injured with a problem in the foot. But even during the World Cup in Russia the rumours about his future are still around him.
The last one speaking about this is Kaká, another Brazilian who played for Real Madrid some years ago, although he was far from being successful in the Spanish capital. The former Milan player advised Neymar to sign for Los Blancos if he really wants to do that in an interview published with the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“This is a personal decision. If he signs for Real Madrid now, perhaps people will say that he’s only gone to Paris to build a bridge towards Madrid. But, if this is what he wants, he has to do it and be ready to manage the situation”, Kaká said in the Italian newspaper. “There is always a lot of pressure on him. In Brazil is amazing, people speak about his level, class, but also about his haircut, his bags… He is a great player but also a celebrity and it’s not easy to manager all these things”, Kaká said, probably with his own experience.
Even if Neymar is a great player, it’s still too soon to compare him with great players like Pelé: “It’s early to tell. Neymar is 26 years old and he is arriving to be mature. He’s one of the candidates to win the Ballon d’Or Award in the next years because he’s growing”. Kaká also spoke about his rivals Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi: “Because of the age, they have to go down physically. But we cannot tell when this will happen. Cristiano is 33 and he’s a positive surprise, it’s a privilege to see what he’s doing in a football pitch”.
