Ahead of the upcoming Champions League final against Liverpool, Cristiano Ronaldo took the time to give an interview to El Chiringuito de Jugones, in which he briefly commented on the rumors linking Neymar with a summer transfer to Real Madrid.
Paris Saint-Germain have vowed to keep the Brazilian superstar in France until his contract runs out in 2022, but it’s becoming increasingly likely that the player will force out a move long before that in order to return to Spain and join Real Madrid.
The former Barcelona forward could even be on the move this summer, as his agent and father have allegedly met with the Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to arrange the transfer.
In light of these rumors, journalists asked Cristiano Ronaldo what he thought of the entire transfer saga and the Portuguese duly replied:
“At Madrid there is continually talk of signings,” Ronaldo told El Chiringuito de Jugones.
“I have been here eight years and they are always talking about 50 players that are going to come, and in the end none come.”
“In September a lot of players are going to come and then in the end those who reach the finals are always the same.” (via Goal)
Given these comments, it appears Ronaldo will not be the one to leak the transfer if the deal does go through later in the summer.
What do you think? Should Real Madrid sign Neymar?
