Football super-agent, Pini Zahavi, has said Neymar is unlikely to move to Real Madrid while Cristiano Ronaldo is still there.
In an interview with Polish news outlet, Przeglad Sportowy, Zahavi stated that there is only room for one superstar per team.
Zahavi acted as intermediary in Neymar’s blockbuster move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain last summer.
The Israeli agent also admitted that Neymar had to leave Barcelona to get out of Lionel Messi’s shadow.
“Neymar did what he had to,” Zahavi said.
“There are only three football superstars – Messi, Cristiano and Neymar. They can’t play in one club.
“At Barca, Ney always was the No. 2. He was the second to shoot from free kicks, second to the penalties, second to everything.
“He came to Spain as a young boy. He grew up. Now he’s 26 and has eight or nine years at the top level. He needs independence.”
