Ronaldo approved the purchase of Neymar
Former Real Madrid striker Ronaldo shared his opinion about the possible transfer of PSG forward Neymar to the Madrid team. His words lead Marca.
"Neymar is a fantastic player. Perhaps in a few years he will be the best football player in the world. And "Real" needs the best," said the 41-year-old Brazilian.
Ronaldo also spoke about the favorite in the match of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League between Real Madrid and PSG. "I am the ambassador of Real Madrid, so I want them to win. But on the other hand, I like PSG, and Neymar is my great friend, whom everybody loves. I'm not torn - I just hope to see a great game and a better victory," he said.
In late January, it was reported that Neymar will move to Real Madrid, if he helps PSG win the Champions League in the season-2017/2018. Prior to this, the president of the Madrid club, Florentino Perez, announced his desire to buy a striker and a willingness to include in the possible deal forward Cristiano Ronaldo, with whom his relations deteriorated.
Neymar moved to PSG from Barcelona in the summer of 2017 for a record 222 million euros. The athlete could not adapt to life in Paris and was unhappy at the club.
