Rio – At a great stage in European football, Neymar has already addressed the possibility of returning to Brazilian football after the Qatar World Cup. In participation in the “Charla Podcast”, the vice of football of Flamengo, Marcos Braz, opened the doors of the club for the star of the Brazilian team.
“I think that the specific case of Neymar today is completely out of the question when you analyze normal market situations. Now, when a World Cup passes, Neymar wins a Cup and says: ‘I’m going to live in Brazil for six months, in Mangaratiba. [cidade do Estado do Rio onde possui casa], I want to play in Flamengo…’. If he makes that move, it’s possible. If he doesn’t make that move, I say it’s impossible,” he said.
Despite the desire, the manager admitted that it is very complicated to carry out a contract of this size these days. In 1995, less than a year after Brazil’s world title, Flamengo got right with Romário, the best player in the world at the time.
“The player has to give up a lot. And today there are… Not that I want to belittle the great signings back then, but today there are more barriers in relation to the market, an alternative media that we didn’t have before. I don’t know, for example, how much does each Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi post cost. I mean, you didn’t have this market back then. I think it’s difficult. Now, Flamengo is structuring itself, increasingly creating musculature at all levels and areas . Maybe a little further on, if I asked that question, I would be answering differently”, he said.
