Roberto Carlos seems interested in joining Real Madrid in some way. The Real Madrid legend spoke in an interview with COPE and openly talked about Neymar leaving FC Barcelona and signing for Real Madrid.

"I can bring him to Real Madrid, he's so young and talented that I am sure that he will have even better results in next year's Ballon D'Or," said Roberto Carlos, who has a good relationship with Neymar.

"It would be an honor for me to work with Real Madrid. I had a meeting with the club to talk about my future there and we will know something about it this Friday. It's hard to be a Director of Football, I'd rather work with Zidane, help him and also learn from him," he added.

According to some reports from Spain, Real Madrid would be interested in signing Neymar away from FC Barcelona, something that would be very difficult knowing how important the Brazilian is in Luis Enrique's plans. However, the Brazilian still has to sign a contract extension and a salary raise that would make his departure from Barcelona even more difficult than it is now.
