Neymar move was doubtful, says Carvajal

Real Madrid right-back Dani Carvajal has revealed that he was always sceptical of Los Blancos’ chance to sign PSG ace Neymar. He also gave his views on rumours linking Real Madrid with a move for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Neymar’s future was uncertain for the entire summer and the Brazilian was incessantly being linked with moves to Los Merengues and former club Barcelona. Meanwhile, Zidane was also rumoured to be at loggerheads with Perez over Paul Pogba’s transfer.

“You saw that one day he went to Barca, another day he came with us, another day he stayed,” he told El Partidazo de COPE.

“We asked the Brazilians and they told us that he didn’t know. I was in doubt. He is a top-five or top-three player. Such a player is welcome on any team.”

He added: “Pogba sounded good too. The transfer dates close differently everywhere and in the end he has not arrived.

“We are who we are, and we cannot think of someone who is not with us.”

“There is always talk of revolution, but in a team like Real Madrid, where everyone wants to be and not everyone wants to leave, it’s not easy,” he said.

“Players have come to help us like Hazard, Militao, Mendy … and I think it is to complement a great workforce.”

Real Madrid sit four points behind league leaders Atletico Madrid and will face Levante following the international break.
