Marcelo Predicts Neymar Switch, Says Cristiano Ronaldo 'Doesn't Own Real Madrid'

Speaking to the press ahead of Brazil's World Cup campaign Marcelo was asked whether club mate Ronaldo would have a problem if his national teammate Neymar signed for the club the left-back responded that he would not rule out Neymar joining Madrid, " Cristiano doesn't own Real Madrid so if the president wants to sign somebody he will do it.

The Portuguese worldwide helped Real Madrid to four UCL titles in the last five years, and the EURO16 win with Portugal has made him one of the best players the game has ever seen. Meanwhile, there's never any shortage of faithful Messi followers who believe the Barcelona player should be the cover of every game ever.

While Marcelo wants Ronaldo to remain in the Spanish capital, the Brazil full-back said the 33-year-old will not determine whether worldwide team-mate Neymar will arrive or not.

Meanwhile, Real full-back Marcelo said he is hopeful of Neymar playing for the La Liga club and that that there is place for both the Brazilian striker and Ronaldo at the club.

Per Goal's Chris Burton, speculation about the pair is rife, with Neymar linked to Real Madrid throughout his entire stay with Paris Saint-Germain, whom he joined from Barcelona past year.

As for Ronaldo, United are wary of being used by the player to get better terms at Real.

Around the same time, disappointed with Zinedine Zidane's abrupt decision to leave Real Madrid, which he has coached for several years, the 33-year-old took to Instagram to post his heartfelt goodbye: "All I feel is pride at having been your player. I don't know when".

"I guess it would be necessary to recognise more Real Madrid's three titles, with due merits, no other thing". Something tells us he'll be banging in a few more goals for them next year, too.

In football, cash is king, and while the World Cup is a welcome break for most of us from the ludicrous transfer fees and ever rising price of replica shirts, there's still an bad lot of money involved. I understood it as a joke from Sergio, everybody saw, there's a video with Sergio saying this.

After talking about his stint as a Real player in past tense, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor gave ambiguous answers when he was asked to clarify his post-match comments later in the day.
