Neymar: Ronaldo Wanted Me At Madrid

Barcelona new boy Neymar has revealed that Brazil legend Ronaldo, as well as Kaka and Marcelo all tried to convince him to join Real Madrid.

The Brazilian starlet has finally decided to cross over to Europe this summer, after being courted by some of the biggest clubs in the world.

In the end, the player was choosing between Madrid and Barcelona, and he is happy that he has decided to head to Camp Nou.

"Ronaldo, Kaka, Marcelo... Lots of people said I should sign for Real," he told Marca.

"But, in the end, I made a decision which I discussed a lot with my family and I'm very happy with the path I've chosen to play in Europe."

Neymar also admitted that linking up with four-time Ballon d'Or winnner Lionel Messi will be "special".

"I'll try to adapt to my new team as soon as possible so I can play at my top level from the start," he added.

"It's an honour to be able to play with Messi. I'm very happy; it's all very special."
