Neymar should consider Real switch - Perez

Share

Perez attempted to bring Neymar to Real from Santos on several occasions before he plumped for arch-rivals Barcelona in 2013.

"Being at Madrid would make it easier [for Neymar] to win the Ballon d'Or".

Perez has added fuel to the saga in some interviews held after Cristiano Ronaldo won his fifth Ballon d'Or award on Thursday (7 December), beating Lionel Messi and Neymar himself.

Even though the Brazilian joined the French club from Barcelona in a record £200million deal this summer, he is already being linked with a move to the Spanish side.

"Mbappé is 18 years old, let's let him develop and see where it comes from; we have the best players".

Perez made it clear that he won't rush signing Kylian Mbappé, the young talent who joined PSG last summer from Monaco.

All I can do when I get an opportunity is play as well as I can and show the boss what I can do. "They are a top team". Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a Champions League spot.

"I think that Cristiano Ronaldo is the heir to Alfredo Di Stefano, it's an honor to count on a player as good as him", he said. "Madrid are a club who allow great players to become even better to reach another level, while PSG has had very few minutes even they have grown recently".

"Being in Madrid would make it easier to win the Ballon d'Or", Perez told Spanish radio.

Neymar, 25, joined PSG from Barcelona in a €222 million deal just last summer, but that has not stopped speculation that the Brazil global could join Madrid, with club captain Sergio Ramos and worldwide teammate Casemiro having both made clear they would welcome his arrival.

The Spanish champions are long-term admirers of the Brazil global.

"Everyone knew that I wanted to sign him", Florentino admitted in respect of Neymar.

"When I finish my career, I will look at the statistics to see if I'm among the best", Ronaldo added.
