Neymar? Every important player wants to play for Real Madrid, says Zidane

Neymar? Every important player wants to play for Real Madrid, says Zidane

Surely, Neymar will be looking to take Brazil all the way to glory this time with the humiliating defeat handed by the mighty Germans from the 2014 World Cup on the back of his mind.

Madrid qualified for a third consecutive Champions League final earlier this month after coming through knockout ties against Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Bayern Munich.

"I, at this moment, I have nothing to say about it".

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is a known admirer of the 26-year-old Brazil star, while reports from Spain have talked of a campaign to court Neymar - whose prospective price tag in the press ranges from €260-400m - as he recovered from a footy injury in his homeland.

Messi told TyC Sports on Tuesday that "it would be bad, for all that Ney means to Barcelona".

And the Argentine admitted seeing his former team-mate at Madrid would be a huge blow.

"I think every important player wants to play at Real Madrid, they all want to come and play here, that's inevitable", he told a post-match news conference. "What I miss from Barcelona and about Barcelona is these two [Messi and Suarez], due to the joy we had on a daily basis".

"It would make Real Madrid stronger".

In an interview with TyCSports, Messi opened up on discussions he has had with Neymar.

'What inspires me the most is playing football.

Striker Neymar, who hasn't played since injury in February, was named Monday as the star of a Brazilian team that coach Tite said has a good chance of winning the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Last summer's world record signing from Barcelona has not featured for PSG since, but is expected to be fit for his country's World Cup warm-up with Croatia on 3 June.

Should he end up joining Real, Neymar will follow in the controversial footsteps of countryman Ronaldo and Luis Figo.
