Neymar came third in in the 2015 Ballon d'Or.

Roberto Carlos confident he can lure Barcelona's Neymar to Real Madrid

Published 1 Comments

Brazil international and Barcelona star Neymar has endured a hugely successful spell since moving to the Camp Nou in 2013.

The 23-year-old helped the La Liga champions to an incredible treble last season and looks well on his way to replicating such form this term.

Despite the winger's undoubted allegiance to the Catalans, former Brazil left-back Roberto Carlos revealed he envisages Neymar one day playing for Real Madrid.

The Barcelona ace lost out to teammate Lionel Messi in the race for the Ballon d'Or on Monday night, finishing third behind Los Blancos' Cristiano Ronaldo with just over 7% of the vote.

Carlos, however, believes Neymar will only get better with age.

He told Punto Pelota, according to Sky Sports: “Neymar is very young. I am sure next year he will finish even higher in the Ballon d’Or.”

Carlos also insists he can help lure his countryman to the Bernabeu.

"I had a meeting with Real Madrid about my future with the club. Soon I will know how I can collaborate with Zidane's Madrid.

"I can take him [Neymar] to Real Madrid."

Neymar has enjoyed an excellent season with the Champions League holders, particularly thriving throughout Messi's two-month absence earlier this season.

Alongside the Argentine and Luis Suarez, the mercurial Brazilian has 15 goals in 16 league appearances this campaign, scoring 18 in all competitions.

Quite how Carlos plans to lure Neymar from the European champions to their rivals remains to be seen.
