Real Madrid left-back Marcelo spoke to Esporte Interativo about his countryman Neymar Jr. just a few days ahead of their clash in the Champions League’s Round of 16, where Los Blancos will face Paris Saint-Germain.

“It would be very cool to have Neymar with us and I think he would fit right in,” said Marcelo. “He’s a great player and those kinds of players have to wear the white shirt. I think Neymar will play for Real Madrid someday,” he added.

Marcelo also had some words to say about the match against PSG.

“I believe this is like a Final, a match everybody is anticipating in this round. PSG are playing well, that’s for sure. They have a great squad an a great team, Madrid have history and tradition, it’s a match nobody will miss,” he said.

Real Madrid need to focus all their efforts in this tie as the Champions League represents the team’s only chance at winning a trophy this season.
