Is there room for Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid?


บอล ชุด In his latest 'Five things from La Liga' column, Guillem Balague explores how Neymar would fit at Real Madrid after Cristiano Ronaldo strengthened his claim as football's greatest ever striker.

Room for Ronaldo and Neymar?
We have to start with Ronaldo, who else? Not only is he the best striker of all time but now there's a case that he is the greatest first-time finisher in history. He only needs one touch to score. His movement is clever, he is strong competing for aerial balls, he sees space and the most importantly, his team-mates see him in those spaces.

He scored a goal every 311 minutes in the first half of the season to one every 44 minutes since January, which is amazing. He's three goals shy of old adversary Lionel Messi in the race for the Pichichi too. Interestingly, the press in Madrid have billed the Pichichi as the biggest award ever, almost as important as winning the league. That, of course, has to do with the fact Real are 15 points behind Barcelona.

Sunday's 6-3 win over Girona provided further evidence that Gareth Bale has fallen behind Macros Asensio and Lucas Vazquez in the appreciation of Zinedine Zidane. Bale got on the scoresheet at the Bernabeu but Asensio and Vazquez do something Bale has not been doing lately, and that's to revel in games like that. บอล ชุด

He's been a little bit resigned, a little bit down and it would be good for all concerned if he demanded the ball, ran into space and positive things that would win back Zidane's faith. To be left out of a game of this stature, though, shows he is yet to win Zidane over.

Karim Benzema, on the other hand, was very good at linking the midfield and attack. With just four La Liga goals to his name this season, this has proven to be his best asset. If say Neymar was added to the equation it would make for an interesting proposition - would Cristiano accept that?

There was a time when Benzema was thinking of leaving Real Madrid and there was a time when Real Madrid were thinking about moving Benzema on. Ronaldo lobbied for Benzema to stay and Gonzalo Higuain eventually left. If Neymar came along, despite Paris Saint-Germain insisting there is no way he is leaving this summer, Real Madrid, Ronaldo and the squad would have to be in favour of his arrival - which they are.

The only problem with this potential transfer is the small matter of wages. Cristiano earns £18m (€21m) net and that's soon to increase to £22m (€25m) with bonuses. Neymar earns a staggering £31m (€35m) net at PSG, so Real Madrid will need to sort that out, perhaps by bringing Ronaldo's wages up to "26m (€30m) and asking Neymar to reduce his wage. บอล ชุด
