Valdano: Chelsea target Neymar 'more creative' than Messi
Former Real Madrid player and director Jorge Valdano was gushing with his praise of Brazilian youngster and reported Chelsea target Neymar on the 'El Larguero' program on radio station Cadena Ser.
Neymar, 20, is often compared to Argentine star Lionel Messi in his homeland, but Valdano believes the duo, and Portuguese maestro Cristiano Ronaldo, offer very different qualities.
"He is the most creative player," the Argentine said. "He is a unique player. Cristiano has power, Messi has ability, but Neymar will beat you ten times in ten different ways. In imaginative and effective ways."
The Santos forward has been heavily linked with a future move to both Barcelona and Real Madrid, which could see him line-up alongside either player, while recent reports have linked the flamboyant attacker with a move to European Champions Chelsea.
Whilst all three players continue to excel, the comparisons will always exist, but as Valdano rightly points out, the trio are very different in their methods of mass destruction.
