Neymar warned of Robinho repeat

Neymar has reportedly been advised to steer clear of apparent interest from Real Madrid this summer.

Los Blancos have been reported in some quarters as prepared to enter the bidding for the 21-year-old Brazilian forward this summer, even if it comes at a great cost of buying him out of a reputed pre-contract agreement with Barcelona.

However, Sport report that Neymar has been told by close advisors to not take up Madrid on any offer that may come his way, as he would risk following in Robinho’s footsteps.

Robinho left Santos for the Santiago Bernabeu in 2005 but departed for Manchester City three years later after relations with then President Ramon Calderon broke down over stalled contract renewal talks.
