The Blancos legend has ever desired to see his fellow Brazilian lining up for the club.

Roberto Carlos revealed he’d have enjoyed Brazil celebrity Neymar in Real Madrid a”long time ago”.

Neymar combined Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona in 2017 but has been linked with a return to Camp Nou and a possible blockbuster switch to Madrid.

Carlos, a Madrid and Brazil great, stated he wanted Neymar in the Santiago Bernabeu long past.

“If it had been up to me, [Neymar] would be here a long time ago, but life isn’t how one would enjoy it,” Carlos told Fox Sports Radio.

“These terrific players always need to play to find the best clubs on the planet. Real Madrid today is a reference for any participant.

“Would you like to acquire the Champions League? Come to Real Madrid.”

Present Real Madrid midfielder, Casemiro, also recently announced his desire for Neymar to join him in the Santiago Bernabeu.

“I wanted Neymar to come to Real Madrid, I talk to him almost daily, he’s a fantastic player,” Casemiro informed Onda Cero.

Carlos won four La Liga games and three Champions Leagues with Madrid, while he was also a 2002 World Cup winner with Brazil.

Madrid’s present left-back, Marcelo, has been out of favour with Brazil, with his last international appearance coming in the 2018 World Cup.

Carlos expects the 31-year-old can eventually earn a return for the national group.

“Everyone deserves a fresh chance and I believe Marcelo is growing again to function as Marcelo I watched play, with joy, that does things that only he can perform on the field,” he said.

“I hope he returns to the national team and disputes that the position with Filipe [Luis], Alex Sandro and Renan Lodi.”

Real Madrid sit second in La Liga this season, two points behind Barcelona, with the contest suspended indefinitely as a result of coronavirus pandemic.

“The RFEF and La Liga agree that the suspension of professional football contests until the competent authorities of the government of Spain and the overall state administration consider they may be resumed and this doesn’t pose any threat to health,” an RFEF announcement.

“Both the RFEF and La Liga want to reveal their best public gratitude to all people that are devoting their best efforts to provide essential services to Spaniards, and we wish to demonstrate our sincere remembrance for all of the deceased and a warm embrace from the world of football for many families which are losing loved ones.”
