Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos has revealed the reason why Neymar left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain during the last summer transfer window.

Carlos was of the opinion that Neymar was right to leave Barcelona for PSG at the end of last season.

PSG broke the world transfer record to secure his services last summer, but it appears that that the attacker is not enjoying life in the French capital and wants a return to Spain either to Barcelona or Real Madrid.

But the Ligue 1 giants are hoping to keep their most prices asset in the French capital.

And the former Real Madrid defender believes Neymar made the right decision for quitting Nou Camp because of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

“I think that he did well to sign for PSG,"

“To be the best in the world, he had to leave Barca because of Messi.

"He has to be conscious that while Messi and Cristiano are in form, he will have to settle for third place.”

 “His injury is something that we have to accept," Carlos added.

“In Brazil, we are religious and we believe that this type of accident doesn't happen by chance.

“I think that now Neymar will focus more on his work and he will look after himself better,” he told France Football.

Neymar is currently sidelined with a fractured metatarsal which he sustained against Marseille in the Ligue 1, but will be fit in time before the start of the World Cup in Russia.
