Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane on Friday evaded questions of the Spanish giants pursuit of Brazilian forward Neymar. He told a press conference that his team was focused on the Champions League final at the moment.
“I dont know, I don’t think so. What we are thinking about at the moment is the Champions League final,” he said.
”It’s normal that people talk,” he added, “but I am not going there, because we are focusing on the season and the rest we will talk about later.”
When he was asked further if he thought the former Barcelona man would be compatible with Cristiano Ronaldo, he said: ”the good ones are always compatible”.
Reports had yesterday suggested that Neymar held a secret meeting with the La Liga giants regarding a return to Spain. Florentino Perez, Real Madrid’s president, has always been open with his admiration for the player making it possible that the 26-year-old may leave Paris Saint Germain after spending just a season.
Zidane’s squad take on Liverpool in the Champions League final in Kiev on May 26, looking to win the trophy for a third year in a row.
