Real Madrid figure Marcelo made a big claim about Paris Saint-Germain stars Neymar and Kylian Mbappe before Madrid clash against Les Parisiens on Tuesday.
According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid star Marcelo told Brazil teammate Neymar that he ‘plays better than Mbappe’ before Los Blancos’ Champions League clash earlier this week.
MD add that Movistar cameras caught the conversation between the pair before their respective sides took the field to start their warm-ups.
Marcelo’s “Tu juegas mejor que Mbappe” message to Neymar translates to ‘you play better than Mbappe’ in English.
This game ended with a 2-2 draw after Zinedine Zidane’s men looked like they had control until the latter stages of the second half. PSG completed the comeback thanks to goals from the aforementioned Mbappe before Los Blancos academy graduate Pablo Sarabia sealed the final result with a stunning equalizer.
Madrid have been linked with both players in recent times, but it looks like Marcelo has a favorite in the case Los Blancos decide to go for a PSG star.
