I will hate Neymar if he joins Real Madrid - Messi

Neymar should leave Paris Saint-Germian if he wants to win 'anything important', including the Champions League, so says Brazil legend, Rivaldo.

Neymar has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid for a considerable amount of time now with Manchester United also being touted as a possible landing spot in recent weeks and Rivaldo believes the 26-year-old is in the prime condition of his life and should look to leave the French capital in order to win honours more befitting of his level.

“If Neymar doesn't leave PSG he will never win anything important,” the 46-year-old told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Especially the Champions League, which is the most important competition.

“The French league is at a lower level compared to the Spanish and English leagues and he plays for a club without history.”

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane recently expressed his own view that the Brazilian star would be a compatible fit with Cristiano Ronaldo but they would need to place a bid in excess of £200million to prise him away with PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi adamant he will not be sold in the summer.
