Real Madrid star insists Eden Hazard is not better than Neymar

Marcelo believes his new Real Madrid teammate Eden Hazard is not better than Neymar. The Belgian is Madrid’s marquee signing this summer after he joined from Chelsea in a deal which could eventually be worth up to £130 million.

The Belgium international is already impressing in Madrid’s pre-season training sessions and looks set to become a key man for Zinedine Zidane ahead of the upcoming campaign.

But Marcelo feels his Brazil teammate Neymar, who is looking to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer, has the edge over Hazard.

‘Eden’s a top player,’ Marcelo said in an interview with YouTube channel De Sola. ‘A player of high quality and, like Neymar, has the quality to be in the top five. He’s impressive, you cannot compare them, but Neymar is better for me.’ Added the Brazilian.

Meanwhile, Eden Hazard has already made his debut for Real Madrid in 3-1 defeat against Bayern Munich. The Belgium international wore No.50 shit, that might indicate that Gareth Bale and Mariano Diaz are likely to leave the Los Blancos this summer and Hazard will take either 7 or 11 jersey number.
