With Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Juventus in dooubt, Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has admitted that he ‘wants to play with the Portuguese forward before the end of his career.
The Brazil international has taken to the pitch alongside some of the game’s all-time greats, and is currently spearheading Les Parisiens’ attack with fellow forward and starlet Kylian Mbappe.
But one footballer remains who he wishes to partner before his time on the big stage comes to a close.
Speaking to GQ France, Neymar confessed that he wishes to ‘play with Ronaldo’, in a statement which has only fuelled rumours of the 36-year-old’s potential departure from Juventus at the end of the season.
“I want to play with Cristiano Ronaldo,” he said. “I’ve already played with great players like Messi and [Kylian] Mbappe, but I haven’t played with Cristiano Ronaldo yet.”
