Football legend Ronaldo (the real one) believes that his countryman Neymar can become the world’s best player, even better than Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.

Pele keeps going on about Neymar and how he’s not ready to go to Europe and isn’t able for the physical English league but going to Europe as a youngster didn’t do Ronaldo any harm, and he argues that the Santos forward should leave as soon as possible to develop his game.

Speaking at the Leaders in Football event held at Stamford Bridge, Ronaldo said:

“I would advise Neymar to come to Europe as soon as possible, where he would be the best in the world.

“Logically, Messi is better right now but Neymar is a great talent who will show the world that he will be number one.

“I advise him [Neymar] to go as soon as possible because to be number one you have to go to Europe.”


There’s a whole host of clubs that are interested in the 20-year-old’s signature, including Barcelona, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

Neymar linked up well with Oscar during Brazil’s 6-0 victory over Iraq last night and added a beauty himself (check out the video below), could we see them linking up at club level at some point in the future?
