Lionel Messi: It Would Be Terrible If Neymar Joined Real Madrid!

By David Kappel - May 16, 2018 09:31 AM @kappilinho

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has voiced his strong opinion on rumours linking his former teammate Neymar with a move to bitter rivals Real Madrid.

Click through the gallery above to see some players who played for both Barca and Real.

The Argentine chatted to TyC Sports ahead of his visit to South Africa, and insisted it would be "terrible" for the Catalan giants if does Neymar decide to join Los Blancos one day.

"It would be terrible, because of what Ney means for Barcelona," he said, as quoted by Marca.

"Here he won important titles; Champions League, LaLiga... and it would be a hard blow for everyone.

"It would make Real Madrid better, and when I speak with him, he knows it."

Neymar joined Paris Saint-Germain in a €222 million (R3.3 billion) world record deal in August 2017, but reports suggest that he wants to leave the French giants in the coming transfer window, and that he met with Real representatives during his recovery in Brazil recently to discuss a potential switch.

The superstar himself recently stated that he is getting "tired" of the constant transfer rumours around his future, before adding that he is focusing only on the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Ha ha ha haaaa laughing my lungs out.....@ "don't be a coward my king" As much as he is an exceptional footballer, what lets him down is exactly that factor.....cowardice. He is loaded with all skills you can think of (even more than CR7)......but what completes footballing greats is character, lion heart and bravery.......that is where this growing mash product fails dismally. He needs the likes of Neymar, Coutinho, Iniesta, Busquets, Xavi to fight it out for him......whilst he will just dazzle with skills and claim the dish of fame. When is expected to take leadership and create something out of nothing (a defining factor about footballing greates), he just freezes. Even with Argentina you have the likes of De Maria who have to fight it out alone whilst this artificially amplified prodict chokes.

To siss-messi groupies......stop it COWS, Neymar will never come back to barCOWlona. As for him joining Los doesn't make any difference. We were the best when he competed against us, we will still be the FOOTBALLING INSTITUTION OF THE CENTURY even when he decides to join us. The good thing about this possibility (him joining Royal Madrid) is that, the whole thing will rub fan material in barCOWs faces. Even this artificial emplified growing mash product knows........they will never stand that state of hopelessness.

@mainama......hahahahahaaaa Worse for the 3rd time in a row. What make things worse is the fact that barCOWlona is left with 8 LaLiga titles before they can brag about rulling in Spain. This is a drwam he will never realise......3 UEFA CL finals in a row......worse when you speak of winning it 3 times in a row. He can only archive that when he plays his X-box or Playstation

He knows better, he is now scared of Neymar...If he Join Madrid he can doubt that in no time. Look at Bale from 2013 - 3 UEFA Champions League already and stand a good chance of winning 4th one compared to Neymar who only won 1
