Despite his injury in February, Neymar still managed to claim the Ligue 1 Player of the Year award in his first season after his world record £200m move. The 25-year-old’s 19 goals is just 20 goals didn’t harm his chances at the trophy, however, many suggest France’s top division is not at the required level for a player of Neymar’s calibre and now Marcelo has insisted players as great as the former Barcelona star ‘need to play for Real Madrid’.

Speaking to AS, Marcelo said: “Great players have to play here. Real Madrid is very big and the big players need to play in Real Madrid. The best come to Madrid and I would love to play with Neymar.”

Despite Marcelo’s public revelation of his desire to play with Neymar at club level, the Los Blancos defender insists he does not talk about a potential move when with Neymar, revealing: “When I talk to Neymar, I’m not talking about Real Madrid or leaving PSG.”
