Lionel Messi: Neymar Joining Real Madrid 'Would Be Terrible' for Barcelona Fans

Lionel Messi: Neymar Joining Real Madrid 'Would Be Terrible' for Barcelona Fans

Messi and Neymar will be rivals this summer as Argentina and Brazil chase World Cup glory in Russian Federation.

Messi, who spent four seasons alongside Neymar at the Nou Camp, admits he would not like to see the 26-year-old at the Bernabeu.

Real boss Zinedine Zidane is reportedly planning a summer clear-out with the likes of Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema expected to leave the club.

Lionel Messi believes that it would be bad if his former teammate Neymar signs for Madrid because of what it will mean to Barcelona.

Incidentally, Neymar had reportedly said he'd return to Barcelona if Messi requested him to. He won the Champions League and La Liga.

Should Real Madrid wish to actually deliver the "huge blow" to Messi and their rivals at Barcelona, they may have to get past the Emir of Qatar.

Neymar has scored 28 goals and made 19 assists across all competitions this term.

Much of Messi's career has been spent competing with Ronaldo for the title of world's best, with the pair having enjoyed a decade of dominance at the top of the game. "One watches other leagues, but at the time to decide, it's hard to leave Barcelona".

Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah has heaped praise on the meteoric rise of Liverpool forward Mohammed Salah but does not believe he is on par with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Juventus then felt the sting of being drawn against Real Madrid once again in a two-legged tie that was eventually settled by a last-minute penalty, and German champions Bayern Munich were then edged out during the semi final of this season's Champions League.

Madrid will be looking to lift the Champions League for the third year in a row in Kiev, whereas Liverpool are bidding for their sixth European crown. "It's a weight that we carry and we want to overcome it", he said.
