‘Barca Won’t Let Neymar Escape to Madrid’ Says Rivaldo
Brazil and Barcelona legend Rivaldo says he cannot see Neymar moving to Real Madrid this summer- because Barcelona won’t allow it.
Barca are heavily linked with Neymar, who left the club for Paris Saint Germain in 2017 and have made several bids for him as the transfer deadline approaches.
Madrid are also linked with a move for Neymar, but ex-Brazil and Barca attacker Rivaldo cannot see the player moving to the Bernabeu.
"I can't see Neymar signing for Real Madrid because the player wants to return to Barcelona and the club seems focused on making that a reality before the transfer deadline,” Rivaldo told Betfair.
"I believe Barcelona won't let Neymar escape and despite all that happened with him leaving the club a few years ago, he would always be an excellent signing for the team and could quickly convince Blaugrana fans once again with his excellent quality on the pitch."
