Ronaldo: Neymar took a step back leaving Barca for PSG


BRAZIL legend Ronaldo believes Neymar's career has taken a step backwards following his move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Eyebrows were raised when Neymar left Lionel Messi and Barca in a world-record deal after French powerhouses PSG activated the Brazil international's €222 million buyout clause in August. They were once a part of the world's deadliest attacking trio, along with Luis Suarez.

Neymar, 25, completed a world-record £198million move from Barcelona to the French capital last summer and has scored 20 goals in his opening 22 appearances for PSG.

Real Madrid have reportedly put PSG star Neymar at the top of their summer transfer wishlist, with a fee of £357m said to be enough to secure the Brazilian's signature.

This weekend is going to be a stringent test for Paris Saint-Germain as they take on Nantes, now managed by Claudio Ranieri in the Ligue 1. PSG are likely to be back wearing Ligue 1 champions patches on their kit for next season, with the French giants now nine points ahead of second place Monaco.

The Brazil global, who played and scored in Wednesday's Coupe de la Ligue victory over Amiens, will not travel to the Stade de la Beaujoire. He can be termed as a match-deciding element who can raise the level of his team with his qualities.

Having already played for bitter rivals Barcelona, a move to the Bernabeu could not be the best idea for Neymar - if history is anything to go by.
