Eden Hazard: Marcelo prefers Brazilian teammate over Hazard at Real Madrid in a recent interview with a Spanish publication.
Many believe that Real Madrid have captured the transfer of the season in Eden Hazard. However, there is one man who believes that the Los Blancos could have done one better by getting PSG’s Neymar.
Real Madrid Left Back has rated his compatriot Neymar above the new Belgian signing. Marcelo conceded that Hazard was one of the best players going around in the world right now. However, he believed that Neymar was still the superior of the two.
In an interview with Marca,
“Eden’s a top player. “A player of high quality and, like Neymar, has the quality to be in the top five. He’s impressive, you cannot compare them, but Neymar is better for me.”
Marcelo went on to say that he would accept the forward in the Santiago Bernabeu despite his Barcelona past.
“Neymar is an unpredictable player. When defending when you have anticipated something, he has already thought of something else and it’s impossible to defend. Having Neymar at Real Madrid would be a huge pleasure. Madrid have to do everything to sign the best players in the world and his past at Barcelona would not be a problem.”
