Ex-Real Madrid Boss: Los Blancos Should Sign This Star Instead Of Neymar

By Keegan Kruger - Jul 04, 2018 05:31 PM @KeeganKruger

Paris Saint-German superstar Neymar has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid, but a former Los Blancos manager believes the club should be looking at somebody else instead.

Maradona Comments On Rumours Linking Ronaldo With Real Exit

The Brazil international has reportedly had enough of life in Paris and wants to return to LaLiga – where he spent four years with Spanish giants FC Barcelona – and it is believed that Real are after his services.

However, former Los Blancos coach Jorge Valdano feels it would be better for the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League winners to go after the Brazilian's club teammate Kylian Mbappe instead.

"Neymar would have plenty of value regarding both marketing and football," he told Onda Cero.

"I think Madrid have interest in him, but I do not know about any offers or any potential bids, but it would be nearly impossible to sign a player who can sell a lot like him.

"I would prefer if they go for Mbappe as he would be a long-term investment because he is six years younger and is already at the top level.

"He scores a lot of goals, plays direct attacking football, breaks through defences, and he will define the next decade of football, he reminds me of Ronaldo Nazario.

"I believe Mbappe is also a good person."

Reports: Ronaldo Agrees €100m Juventus Move

The France international, who has scored three goals at the 2018 FIFA World Cup so far, joined Les Parisiens from Monaco in August 2017, in an initial loan deal that will be worth a reported €170 million (R2.71 billion) once it is made permanent.

It will be one of them, not both. Both will never work because of Neymar's EGO......Mbappe will be a better long-term investment........I would love him for Barca! I would prefer Real getting Neymar

Never Mbappé, He's a lucky player thus far, I don't feel him like I feel Neymar for Madrid.
