Former Brazilian striker Ronaldo De Lima has advised Neymar about Real Madrid move, according to report.

The ex-Real Madrid and Barcelona striker has heaped praise on the Paris Saint-Germain star as a 'superb player,’

Ronaldo is aware of Real Madrid interest in the Paris Saint Germain forward as the fleet-footed attacker is linked with a move back to Spain.

If Neymar could seal a move to Real Madrid he will be one of the few players that have represented both clubs.

Ronaldo, 41 also played for the two clubs during his playing days before he moved to AC Milan before he called it quit in his career.

"Neymar is a superb player, maybe he will be the best in the world in a few years, and Real Madrid need the best," Ronaldo told Marca at the unveiling of Nike's new Mercurial 360 boots in London on Wednesday.  

With comparisons of the two players' career paths already being discussed, Ronaldo dismissed any suggestion that 26-year-old Neymar would rule out a move to Real Madrid due to his former allegiances - although he did admit that a move is unlikely to happen as quickly as some report.

He added: "Well, I didn't plan for anything other than being at Inter for five years, but then there was the possibility and I went because Madrid is a team where everyone wants to play.

"I haven't heard any official representative of Real Madrid say anything about Neymar. They should think about what they have and this year it's difficult for Madrid, they have to keep going and end well.

"The Champions League is a competition that they do well in and we will see how it ends because everything changes very quickly in football."

However, in order to progress to the quarterfinal stage of the Champions League Real Madrid must first overcome Neymar's PSG, a clash Ronaldo believes will be won by a small margin. 

"It's a very difficult game, I am a Real Madrid ambassador and obviously I want them to win, but on the other hand, I like PSG and my great friend Neymar is there, and everyone loves him.

"I don't have split loyalties, I hope it is a great game and the best team wins," he added.
