Ronaldo Urges Real Madrid To Go After Neymar

Goalkeepers like Thibaut Courtois and Loris Karius are too eager to rush out

The Brazil star quit Barcelona for PSG last summer in a world-record €222million deal - but his time in Paris has been dogged by reports that the move will only act as a stop-gap and a prelude to a summer 2018 return to La Liga with Real.

This season has not exactly been a vintage one for former Manchester United star Ronaldo so far. The Independent reported in January that Real are keen on bringing the Brazil worldwide to Santiago Bernabeu as part of a "major renovation" in the summer.

Sid Lowe adds context to Cristiano Ronaldo's reaction to being subbed out of Real Madrid's draw at Levante and Zinedine Zidane's defence of the move. Madrid are now 4th in La Liga, 19 points off league leaders Barcelona, while Ronaldo has only scored eight goals in 17 La Liga games.

Real Madrid and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo believes he is still capable of playing at the highest level "for a few years". "I'm sure of that", the 33-year old said in an interview to RMC on Wednesday. "I haven't heard any official representative of Real Madrid say anything about Neymar". Real are now fourth in the league table with 39 points after 21 games.

Real have already been knocked out of the Copa del Rey and the Champions League is the only competition where they have a chance to win another silverware this season.

"When Messi or Ronaldo will be in a bad shape, and we'll see more at Cristiano because of his age [33], Neymar will be the next Ballon d'Or victor. I feel that I can keep going at the highest level for years to come", he told GQ Magazine.

The pair have combined to score 42 goals for PSG season and we will get a better idea of whether they are primed to become one of Europe's genuine contenders when they take on Real Madrid in the Champions League round-of-16.
