Ronaldo left Los Blancos ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, but returned to Madrid this week to pick up the Marca Legend award.

During his visit, he was asked about the rumours linking Neymar with a return to Camp Nou, but the Portugal captain believes the world’s most expensive player might stay at Paris Saint-Germain.

“I don't know. He's a great player and I get on well with him. We've worked together recently (for advertising campaigns),” he told Marca.

“But there's a lot of talk about him for Madrid, Barcelona and Juve. It's the press' job because they need to sell but I think he'll stay in Paris.

“If not, he'll go where he's happy and where he can express his football a lot. I like to see him playing and regardless of where he is, taking care of himself and avoiding injuries. That's what I want for him.”

Ronaldo was then asked about how strong he FC Barcelona ahead of the new campaign. 

“As every year, they're very strong,” he added.

“They've signed very well with (Frenkie) de Jong, (Antoine) Griezmann, like last year with (Philippe) Coutinho and (Ousmane) Dembele.

“They're one of the best in the world, like Madrid with (Eden) Hazard, (Luka) Jovic and (Ferland) Mendy. But Juve too.”
