Brazilian legend Ronaldo has admitted that Neymar is his country’s greatest hope for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Speaking in an interview with CNN, the 41-year old has talked about Brazil’s chances of winning the tournament for a record sixth time.

Ronaldo believes Neymar can take the Seleção all the way having returned from a long-term injury, just like he himself did to help Brazil lift the title in 2002.

Brazil, meanwhile, have been drawn in Group E alongside Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia.

Their first game will be against the Swiss on June 17.

Neymar's spectacular first season at PSG was cut short by injury.

The transfer saga that just runs and runs.

According to Marca, Neymar was reportedly spotted in discussion with a Real Madrid representative in Liverpool last week.

The Brazilian superstar, who starred during the Yellows’ pre-World Cup friendly victory over Croatia at Anfield on Sunday June 3, apparently met with a Los Blancos emissary ahead of the game.

Sources have also revealed that Los Blancos have been in constant contact with the 26-year-old’s people amid speculation he could end his one-season stint with Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

It would, however, take another world-record fee to prise Neymar away from the Parc des Princes – given the Ligue 1 giants shelled out €222 million for his services 12 months ago.
