Real Madrid has been regularly associated with the arrival of Neymar in the past, and since the Brazilian moved to Paris Saint-Germain last summer, rumours have only intensified. However, Mariano Rajoy, Prime Minister of Spain and lifelong fan of the Royal Netherlands, hopes that his club will not attempt to collect Neymar in the Parc des Princes.
I wouldn’t like to see Neymar in the white shirt. I don’t know if Real Kylian Mbappé should have fought last summer, but Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo were great and now after a few months there are doubts. We need to see it in a somewhat more perspective, I believe in them “, explains the politician in conversation with AS. Real takes it up against PSG in the eighth finals of the Champions League on Wednesday and Rajoy hopes that the Spaniards will pull at the longest end.
If you think rationally about it, you could believe that they are going to make us into it. But in this kind of competition everything is possible. We should not forget that we are talking about Madrid, the Champions League is their competition. Now even more so than ever since they are so far behind in LaLiga and are turned off for the Copa del Rey. They have the same team as last year, a team that won three of the last four Champions Leagues. I think we can switch off PSG.
People at PSG always talk about Mbappé, Neymar and Edinson Cavani, they are also great, but that’s the rest of the team as well. They still have Ángel Di María, Marco Verratti, Adrien Rabiot, that Argentine boy, Giovani Lo Celso. Real Madrid receives Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday in Santiago Bernabéu, after which the return in Paris is scheduled for 6 March.
Who do you think will reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League?
