Neymar will face a lot of scrutiny if he moves to Madrid – Kaka
In an interview to Italian newspaper ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’, Kaka said that moving to Real Madrid would mean much more spotlight for Neymar and that he will have to deal with the pressure there. It has to be noted that several Real Madrid Latest News sources have mooted the idea of former Barcelona star Neymar replacing Cristiano Ronaldo at Santiago Bernabeu this summer.
“It’s a personal decision, if you sign for Madrid now, maybe it will be said that you only went to Paris Saint Germain to build a bridge to Madrid, but if this is what you want, you have to do it and be ready to manage the situation,” Kaka said.
“There’s always a lot of pressure on him, he’s amazing in Brazil, he talks about his performance, his class, but also his hairstyle, the backpacks he’s wearing, he’s a great player, but he’s also a celebrity and it’s not easy to manage everything this,” he added.
In more Real Madrid Transfer News 2018, Kaka, who represented prestigious clubs like Sao Paulo, AC Milan and Real Madrid during his playing career, also stated that it is way too early to even consider comparing Neymar with a great Brazilian legend like Edson Arantes do Nascimento “Pele”.
“It’s early to say, Neymar is 26 years old and is reaching maturity, he’s one of the candidates to win the Golden Ball in the coming years because he’s growing,” he said.
“Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, due to advancing age, will have to undergo physical downturn, but you can not say when this will happen. Cristiano is 33 years old and it is a positive surprise seeing him perform at this level. It is a privilege to see what he does in the field,” Kaka said in conclusion.
“Believe in Brazil”
Moving away from Real Madrid Latest Transfer News, Kaka was also asked about Brazil‘s performance at the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. He assured that “Selecao” have everything to win their sixth World Cup title this summer.
“Brazil is on the right track, against Serbia (third group F game) it will be seen if Brazil is at full strength or not yet, but after the second half of the match with Costa Rica (won 2-0) I have confidence,” he claimed.
The former Brazilian player, who won the World Cup in 2002, considered Brazil “will go better and better” and is ready to reach the final on July 15 in Moscow.
