Neymar: I’d love Ronaldo at Barcelona

Barcelona forward Neymar says he would relish the chance to link up with Cristiano Ronaldo at Camp Nou.

Ronaldo recently admitted he could leave Real Madrid when his contract expires in 2018.

The 31-year-old has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain and a move to MLS, but Neymar admitted he would welcome him at Barca.

“I’m a fan of Cristiano; he’s a legend, one of a kind. It would be very good if he played for Barcelona,” he told A Bola.

Neymar has formed arguably the world’s best forward line alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez but he says the rest of his team-mates deserve credit and hopes the club can retain the Champions League.

“I think the team is not only this trident, we can be considered one of the best in history,” he said. “I love playing with my team-mates and I feel very proud to be part of this team.

“It’s difficult [to defend the Champions League], there are great teams, as good as Barcelona. I can only guarantee that we won’t lack the determination to try.”
