Former Real Madrid star Ronaldo De Lima Nazario wants Kylian Mbappe at Real Madrid ahead of his fellow compatriot Neymar, according to report in Marca.
Ronaldo prefers the World Cup winner ahead of Neymar due to their age difference, “Right now, it is not that one is better than another, but if Real Madrid had to make a big investment, they should do so thinking about the future,” he said during a webinar hosted by Santander.”Neymar is 28 years old and Mbappe is 22.
“As an investment, it would be more logical to bring the younger [of the two],” said the Brazilian. Nevertheless, Ronaldo is hopeful that Neymar can win the Champions League.
“He needs to win the Champions League to complete his season,” Ronaldo said.”He has played very well in the last few games, especially in this final phase in Portugal.
“He has created many scoring chances, but he has lacked calmness to finish off moves.”With luck and calmness, he can find himself scoring in the final,” he stated.
The Paris Saint- Germain attacker has the chance to win his first Champions League medal when his team face Bayern Munich on Sunday evening the final showdown of the competition.
