They may be a partnership for their international team Brazil but Marcelo of Real Madrid has admitted he will not be friends with Neymar when his side meet Barcelona in the El Classico. The pair both played in last nights shock result against Switzerland, Brazil lost 1-0 thanks to a bizarre own goal by Dani Alves. Marcelo had this to say about Neymar:
– That is normal. I already have that with Dani Alves. And then we are back to normal after the game. It will be the same with Neymar. He is a great friend of mine but that won’t be the case when he lines up against Real Madrid, he says.
Real Madrid, who are still targeting their marquee signing Gareth Bale, are said to be desperate to land him. When Marcelo was questioned about Gareth Bale he said very little.
– We only talk about players who are already at Real Madrid. He is still not here so for us there is no point in talking about anyone else.
