However, the Brazil international shocked the footballing world in 2017 when he left Barcelona to join Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain for a world record fee of €222 million.

Carlos claims he would have had Neymar at the Santiago Bernabeu a long time had been up to him.

"If it were up to me, [Neymar] would already be here a long time ago, but life is not how one would like it," Carlos told Fox Sports Radio.

"These great players always have to play for the best clubs in the world. Real Madrid today is a reference for any player.
