Real Madrid defender Marcelo believes Neymar will join the Spanish champions eventually.

Neymar has consistently been linked with a return to Spain – after leaving Barcelona last summer – but to Barca’s arch-rivals, Real, and his Brazil teammate, Marcelo, has tipped him to join Los Blancos in the future.

"I think Neymar will play for Real Madrid one day," Marcelo told Esporte Interativo ahead of Madrid's showdown with PSG in the Champions League last 16 on Wednesday.

"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."

Neymar only completed his world-record €222 million transfer to Paris Saint-Germain last August but according to Goal, PSG have promised Neymar that they will sell him to Real if they win the Champions League this season.

Real president Florentino Perez has previously fuelled talk of a bid for the Brazilian by claiming that he has a better chance of winning the Ballon d’Or, and breaking the duopoly of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, at Real.

“It’s difficult to see who will take the leadership away from Cristiano [Ronaldo] and [Lionel] Messi,” said Perez in December.

“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.”
