Under pressure Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane on Saturday described Neymar, a rumoured transfer target for the European champions, as a “great player who everyone loves”.
Zidane Madrid are the Spanish champions and have won the past two Champions Leagues, but lie fourth in La Liga 19 points behind bitter rivals Barcelona. The Spanish sports press reported in November that Madrid would make a shock move for Neymar next summer.
Asked at a press conference if Neymar might one day play for Real, Zidane said he didn’t talk about other teams’ players before praising the winger who joined Paris Saint Germain in August. “This is a player who has charmed everyone, the whole football world. He is a great player,” said Zidane.
Madrid fans will get a chance to judge for themselves as Paris and Real meet in the Champions League last-16 in February and March.
