Former Real Madrid striker Robinho has advised international teammate Neymar to join Barcelona instead of Los Blancos.
The Santos attacker has courted interest from top clubs all over Europe, but Robinho, who played over 100 league games for Real, believes the wunderkid should sign for Tito Vilanova's team rather than ply his trade at Santiago Bernabeu.
“If he decides to leave Santos and he has the choice to join Real Madrid or Barcelona, I would advise him to pick Barca,” the Milan man told Lancenet. “Barcelona are a great club and Brazilians have always done well there.
“It will be very difficult for Neymar to become the best player in the world if he continues to play in the Brazilian league. That's why he should move to La Liga.”
Neymar has insisted he will stay with the Sao Paulo based side until after the 2014 World Cup.
