‘I won’t see it as betrayal’: Rivaldo understands why Neymar would be tempted by Real Madrid switch but admits he would ‘prefer to see him back at Barcelona’

  • Neymar is searching for a route of Paris Saint-Germain in the transfer window
  • He has been linked with a sensational return to Barcelona as well as Real Madrid
  • The Brazilian has struggled to settle both on and off the pitch with Ligue 1 giants 

Rivaldo claims Neymar moving to arch rivals Real Madrid from Paris Saint-Germain would not be a ‘betrayal’ to Barcelona.

Neymar is searching for a route out of Ligue 1 giants PSG this summer after struggling to settle both on and off the pitch in Paris following his world-record £198million move from Barcelona.

And he has been heavily linked with a sensational return to Barcelona, as well as old La Liga foes Madrid.

Rivaldo, who featured for the Catalan giants between 1997-2002, insists he can understand why Neymar would be tempted by a move to the Bernabeu but admits he would like to see him re-sign for Barcelona.

Rivaldo told Betfair: ‘Of course, I would prefer to see him back to Barcelona but if he ends up at Real Madrid it will also be a big move for him.

‘For now, what is clear is the player’s desire to leave PSG. With two big Spanish clubs competing for him, he should be even more eager to fly away from Paris.

‘If Zinedine Zidane signs Neymar for Real Madrid, I won’t see it as a betrayal. Neymar left Barcelona to sign for PSG and now could fly to Madrid, so it’s not the same as if he had left Barca for Madrid.’
