Neymar Talking Brazil Pal Danilo Out of Real Madrid Move.. Wants Him at Barcelona Instead

Real Madrid could miss out on transfer target Danilo – because of Barcelona rival Neymar, according to reports.

The Porto full-back is rumoured to be interesting the Spanish giants with the view to a summer move to bring him to the capital.

But they could run into a Neymar-shaped obstacle in any move – after a report from MARCA suggested that he is trying to persuade his Brazil international team-mate – and former Santos pal – NOT to sign for the European champions.

And he wants Danilo to sign for Barca instead.

According to Huge Cerezo, Neymar and Danilo are friends and the former believes the latter can be the perfect replacement for Dani Alves, who is set to leave the club in the summer.

He wrote:

The Barça forward is a very close friend of the Porto right-back, who ‘Los Blancos’ want to see running up and down their right flank next season.

For a while now, Neymar has been trying to persuade his Brazil teammate to join him at Barcelona.

Neymar and Danilo keep in regular contact over the phone. The Barça player has asked his friend to hang in there until Barça’s FIFA sanction comes to an end in January 2016.

It remains to be seen whether Neymar can win this fight, but the situation is sure to anger Madrid as they look to strengthen their squad.
