Ronaldo: Neymar should have moved to Real Madrid


Real Madrid and Brazil legend Ronaldo has said he believes Neymar should have moved to Los Blancos rather than Barcelona.

The 36-year-old former striker spent a year with Los Cules during his playing days and five seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu.

And he says current Brazil star Neymar, a stand out performer in the recent Confederations Cup, should have made the switch from Santos to Madrid.

Both Barcelona and Madrid were believed to have made bids for the 21-year-old, and he chose to sign for the La Liga champions.

Ronaldo told reporters in Las Vegas: “I would have preferred him [Neymar] to sign for Madrid, but it’s not for me to say.

“With so many clubs after him it was difficult to pull off. But Barcelona is a great team and we know he’ll do well in Europe. For us Brazilians he is already a legend.”
