Despite having played for arch-rivals FC Barcelona, Brazil superstar Neymar has been backed to make a sensational move to Real Madrid by a former Los Blancos star.
Ex-Real star Roberto Carlos, who was also part of Brazil's famous 2002 FIFA World Cup-winning squad, has revealed that he has always wanted to see compatriot Neymar turn out for the Madrid giants.
Carlos was speaking to Fox Sports Radio when he revealed that Neymar would already be at the club if he had a say in the matter, and that the 28-year-old's best shot at winning the UEFA Champions League would be with Los Blancos.

"If it were up to me, Neymar would already be here a long time ago, but life is not how one would like it," Carlos said.
"These great players always have to play for the best clubs in the world. Real Madrid today is a reference for any player. Do you want to win the Champions League? Come to Real Madrid."
Neymar currently plies his trade with Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, for whom he has scored 69 goals in 80 appearances since his world record €222 million (R4.2 billion) from Barcelona in 2017.
