Los Blancos are set to reinforce their squad in the summer, with Neymar Jr. on the top of their shortlist.
Neymar’s big money move to PSG has not worked in his favour and the Brazilian is already looking to come back to Spain. Los Blancos are reportedly ready to break the Brazilian’s transfer record of €222 to make him the next Galactico. But former Real Madrid player, Savio does not want the club to sign his fellow countryman.
Neymar not needed?
3-times Champions League winner with Los Blancos, Savio talked about his former club with Marca. The Brazilian stated that Real Madrid does not need Neymar right now. “I always think the greats will join Real Madrid, it’s fantastic. Individually and in the imagination it is the best, but I don’t think they need him right now.”
Savio was also asked about his favourite player in the current team and he praised the likes of Asensio, Lucas and Bale. “It is difficult to compare because they are different, but Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez can decide a match in one move.”
“I also love Gareth Bale. He is different than the rest, you can always expect something from him, in a dribble, a shot, a header.” Savio said about the Welshman.
The Olympic Bronze medallist was finally asked to compare between 5-time Ballon d’Or winners Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. But the Brazilian decided to take a safer route by putting both of them in a separate bracket from other footballers.
“I can never answer this question. I always go with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo because I played football for many years and what we are seeing in these past eight or nine years with them two is something surreal, between the numbers and titles. They are apart from everyone.”

Both Messi and Ronaldo will be in action in the quarter-finals of the Champions League while Neymar continues to recover from his injury.
Nobody can correctly answer if Neymar to Madrid is a wise move right now. While there is no doubt about Neymar’s talent, Ronaldo is still the main man at the Santiago Bernabeu, something the Brazilian will not like if he arrives.
Neymar’s arrival can also affect the talented youngsters like Asensio and Vazquez. Maybe Neymar should wait for one more season to think about the move. But hey, that’s just my opinion. The crazy transfer market will treat us the way it wants, not how we want.
