Marcelo would love for his Brazil teammate Neymar to join him at Real Madrid, but said that he would not try to convince the Paris Saint-Germain striker about his future.
Neymar joined PSG from Madrid’s hated rivals Barcelona last summer but has been strongly linked with a return to Spain to join Zinedine Zidane’s team.
Brazil’s quest for a sixth World Cup begins on 17 June when they face Switzerland in Rostov-on-Don. They will also play Costa Rica and Serbia in Group E, and Marcelo says that he and Neymar will be focused on the Selecao, rather than transfer rumours.
