Roberto Carlos Claims He Can Persuade Neymar to Leave Barcelona For Real Madrid

Roberto Carlos Claims He Can Persuade Neymar to Leave Barcelona For Real Madrid

Roberto Carlos is currently in talks to join Zinedine Zidane’s coaching staff and it looks like the ex-Brazil international is hoping a certain Barcelona superstar will join him at the Bernabeu.

Zidane took over from the ousted Rafa Benitez eight days ago and led Los Blancos to a comfortable 5-0 win against Deportivo on Saturday.

However, it would appear that Zidane is set to to bring another ex-Madrid star into his backroom staff, in the shape of Carlos.

The World Cup winner has a unique advantage if he does join up with Zidane – he spent 11 years at the Madrid club and knows exactly what the fans like to hear.

This was blindingly obvious when Carlos claimed that he is the man who could persuade Neymar to leave Barcelona and join Madrid.

Speaking to Punto PelotaCarlos said: “I had a meeting with Real Madrid about my future with the club.

“Soon I will know how I can collaborate with Zidane’s Madrid.”

Regarding Neymar, the 42-year-old added: “I can take him to Real Madrid.

“He’s very young. I am sure next year he will finish even higher in the Ballon d’Or.”

It seems unlikely that Neymar would be willing to swap Catalonia for the Spanish capital, especially considering how important Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are for his future development.

But, then again, how many times have Madrid got their man over the last few years?
