Barcelona Legend Rivaldo Says Neymar 'Very Likely' to Join Real Madrid

Ronaldinho confident for Neymar comeback

The 26-year-old would do his Ballon d'Or chances no harm by emulating Rivaldo by claiming the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

'I have even told [Neymar] he could be the best in the world, ' Rivaldo told GloboEsporte.com.

Neymar, signed from Barcelona for a world record fee of £200m last summer, did not return to Paris for the club's title celebrations, and this is said to have caused concern at the club.

Or at least that's the view of Brazilian legend Rivaldo, who has identified the ideal club for his compatriot: Real Madrid.

'But I think that if he stays in PSG, he will never make it.

The article in El Pais claimed that a release clause - worth no less than 300 million euros ($368 million) but whose exact value depended on certain results - could be activated from September 1 if the Brazilian star wanted to leave PSG. It's different. I'm talking in terms of football, competition.

Neymar is desperate to be recognised as the world's top footballer. If you're going to analyse it, there's England, Spain, Italy, Germany ... And there, yes, I think he can be the best player in the world'.

'Barcelona, because of his situation, is hard.

Neymar has had a rocky debut season for newly crowned French Champions Paris Saint Germain this season.

"According to the information I have, because of everything I've heard lately, I think it's very likely that Neymar will go to Real Madrid".

The Brazilian, who is now injured and faces a race for fitness before this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation, is also thought to be a summer target for Premier League duo Manchester United and Manchester City.

"I hope so, everyone's expecting him".
