Awful if Neymar joins Real: Messi

Awful if Neymar joins Real: Messi

While Real Madrid are supposedly the frontrunners in the race to sign the superstar still, the Mancunians reportedly possess a trump card in the form of Neymar Santos Sr.

Neymar is desperate to help Brazil - one of the favourites for the tournament - to their first World Cup title since 2002.

The Argentina captain told TyC Sports channel programme "Libero" (via Sport): "It would be awful [if Neymar moved to Madrid] because of everything he means to Barcelona".

Should Real Madrid wish to actually deliver the "huge blow" to Messi and their rivals at Barcelona, they may have to get past the Emir of Qatar.

Awful if Neymar joins Real: Messi

The Brazilian forward quit the Camp Nou outfit to join Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain after the French club triggered his $266m release clause and has impressed in his debut season, scoring 28 goals and assisting 19, before he suffered a season-ending foot injury in March.

Messi added that his future remains at Barca.

Rivaldo is still reeling from the Selecao's failure to secure a sixth title on home soil in 2014, but he believes his country have the right squad this time around to go all the way in Russian Federation with a little help from some star names. "And on a footballing level Madrid would be much stronger than they already are". "What I miss from Barcelona and about Barcelona is these two [Messi and Suarez], due to the joy we had on a daily basis". I think it's one of the most hard I've ever had, because I'm very close to a dream I have, which is the World Cup. "I do not need to go to another team to prove anything".

Zinedine Zidane insists "every important player wants to play for Real Madrid", but refused to entertain the idea of launching an audacious bid for Neymar.
