Roberto Carlos claims he can sign Neymar for Real Madrid

Brazil hero Roberto Carlos has insisted that he can bring compatriot Neymar to Real Madrid. 

As reported by, Carlos, who racked up as many as 370 La Liga appearances for Real, has also tipped the Barcelona star to finish even higher in the Ballon d'Or rankings. 

Neymar, of course, failed to overcome the duo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in his bid to become the world's best player during Monday's ceremony.

However, with Neymar at just 23-years-old, a third place finish will certainly give him a great deal of confidence for the future. 

But will he become a Ballon d'Or winner at Real Madrid? Well - to the surprise of us all - Carlos seems to think so. 

Neymar to Madrid 

"I can bring Neymar to Real Madrid," the 42-year-old said in an interview on Punto Pelota.

"He is still very young and I am sure next year he will finish even higher in the Ballon d'Or."

In fact, after holding a meeting with the Spanish giants, Carlos has revealed that he could be set for a coaching role with the club in the near future. 

"I had a meeting with Real Madrid about my future with the club," Carlos added.

"It would be an honour to work with the club, we should know how [we will] collaborate [with Zidane's Madrid] on Friday."

It can't, can it?

Carlos really does appear to be confident that he can persuade Neymar to join the ranks at the Santiago Bernabeu, but surely it's not happening. 

Barcelona may well have sold Luis Figo to Real Madrid in 2000 - the transfer stunned the Catalan faithful - but there's no way that they will allow Neymar to move to their greatest rivals. 

Perhaps, Neymar could leave Barcelona for another club and then end up at Real Madrid later down the line, but even that would come as a surprise at this stage. 

Can Carlos really tempt Neymar to Real Madrid? Have your say below!
