Although Los Blancos were also linked with a move for the sensational attacker who made a mark during his four-year tenure at Barca.

According to Daily Mail, Neymar's inability to win the Champions League has been one of his reasons to quit PSG despite helping them win back-to-back league trophies - scoring 69 goals in 80 games.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup-winning manager said that the former Santos forward can be difficult to manage, but insisted that his talent cannot be left unmentioned.

"He is a difficult boy. For me it is not a good example. And for the record, for me he is great as a player," the former Real Madrid boss told Mundo Deportivo.

"If you ask me to tell you the top five in the world, he is safe on my list. But in the field he tries to cheat, he pretends a lot. And also, how did he leave Barcelona."

Despite leaving Barcelona since 2017, Neymar has kept tabs with his former teammates like Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez with the trio hanging out sometimes when they are less busy.

His four-year reign at Barca saw him lift one Champions League, two La Ligas and a few other domestic titles.

However, Del Bosque warns the Barcelona hierarchy not to allow his popularity to influence a transfer.

"It is the clubs that must decide who to sign and who not," the Spaniard said.
