Neymar will not join Real Madrid says his former Barcelona team-mate Luis Suarez.
The Brazilian striker has been linked with a swift return to La Liga following his summer move to Paris St Germain.
The forward left Barcelona in a £200million transfer.
But just months after the world record move, Neymar is being linked with another switch – this time to Real Madrid. Reports suggest he is unhappy in Paris, with the poor quality of Ligue 1 a concern.
But suggestions Neymar could join Barcelona’s fierce rivals has been dismissed by his friend and former team-mate Suarez.
‘Not at all,’ he told Marca. ‘Honestly, I do not see it.
‘I know how Neymar is and the admiration he had for Barcelona and his team-mates. I do not see him now going to play Real Madrid.’
