Real Madrid boss Zidane talks Neymar as speculation hots up

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane feels that Neymar and Ronaldo would have no problems playing together.

Brazil star Neymar's chances of recovering before the World Cup is increasing every day but his future with Paris Saint-Germain is now under the cloud.

The 26-year-old, who now looks certain to have recovered in time to spearhead Brazil's World Cup challenge, has been consistently linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent weeks with the Champions League finalists desperate to overhaul their squad in the close season.

Reports in the French and Spanish media say Neymar, who joined the Ligue 1 club from Barcelona for a record 222 million euros last August, has told PSG directors he wants to quit the club after only one season. "But I can't talk about anything like that [Neymar] at the moment", Zidane told reporters.

'I haven't asked Neymar personally because I don't get involved in these things. We must finish this season well, and the rest will be talked about afterwards.

Brazil global Neymar could be on his way to Spanish club Real Madrid this summer after Los Blancos gaffer Zinedine Zidane admitted that he will be compatible with Ronaldo.

Neymar has admitted he needs to overcome the "fear" of his broken foot injury to inspire Brazil at this summer's World Cup. So good players can always play together.

As far as Ronaldo and Neymar co-existing, Zidane doesn't see any issue arising. What's worrying us is what is going on at the moment. Asked whether there were negotiations with the Brazilian, Zidane gave nothing away.

Neymar has since been unveiled as the cover star for PSG's 2018-19 home kit, which was made official just after Emery's appearance in front of the press.
