Meanwhile, former Brazil international Rivaldo has again urged Neymar to leave PSG if he wants to win the Ballon d’Or and Champions League.

“I think that going to Real Madrid, or to some club in England, I think he will have more chances [of winning the Ballon d’Or],” Rivaldo told Sky Sports.

“I mean no offence, but we know that the French league is not the same as the Spanish or English league, where there’s more difficulty.

“I think he [Neymar] would have more chances to win the Champions League, so… when a player wins the Champions League, he has more chances of being the best in the world.”
