Real Madrid 'eyeing future bid for Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar'

Neymar's decision to leave Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain was a "step back" in his development, according to Brazil legend Ronaldo.

During a recent interview with former Brazil global Zico, Ronaldo admitted that he was surprised by Neymar's choice, and feels it was a step in the wrong direction.

However, former Barcelona star Ronaldo believes the move was a step down in terms of his footballing development.

PSG sold the ambition to Neymar that he would be their main man in their quest to become champions of Europe.

Eyebrows were raised when Neymar left Lionel Messi and Barca in a world-record deal after French powerhouses PSG activated the Brazil international's €222 million buyout clause in August. This is already the same tally he finished last season with, and his goals have helped PSG go nine points clear of Monaco at the top of Ligue 1.

"Sportingly, the decision is a step back, but there are challenges that everyone seeks", the 2002 FIFA World Cup victor said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

According to the source, the transfer of Neymar from PSG to real Madrid is estimated at 400 million euros, which is nearly two times more than the French last summer, has paid "to Barcelona".

PSG qualified for the semi finals by defeating Amiens 2-0 while Rennes defeated Toulouse 4-2.
