Neymar to Real Madrid? Ask Florentino Perez, says Emery

When asked about the possibility of signing the world's most expensive player, Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane explained that while he admires his talent, he is still a PSG player.

Madrid are now seven points behind Atletico and 15 points behind La Liga leaders and rivals Barcelona.

Madrid players Casemiro and Dani Carvajal both said this week Neymar could be a success at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real have struggled this season in the league, including a defeat away to newly promoted Girona, who they now face at home on Sunday.

Contrary to comments made by Carvajal about the Champions League being the only remaining priority for Madrid, Zidane feels obliged to drive his players on in search of better domestic performances.

Zidane also said of Neymar: "People can say what they want, what the players say and what I say is always the same, that he is a good player but not ours".

"It is my job and necessary for the team to think that each game is important and what we need to do is move up to second again because Atletico are ahead of us".

"They look as solid as they were past year", said Zidane of the Juve outfit renowned for rock-solid defending and clinical breakaway finishing.

"I think if you look at it, it's going to be 50-50".
