Brazilian superstar Neymar has let his close friends know that he wishes he had joined Real Madrid before Barcelona came in for him.

Spanish weekly sports magazine Don Balon has reported that Neymar repents his decision to join Barcelona over Real Madrid. Los Blancos have completely outshone Barca this season, as they are a point away from winning La Liga, and are already into the finals of the Champions League.

Neymar has been in scintillating form for Barcelona this season, as the forward has already claimed 19 goals and the same number of assists. However, the he seems to be a bit overawed with the supremacy shown by Real Madrid this season, and wishes he had been playing for the men in white instead of the Catalans.

Don Balon also reported that Real Madrid wanted to sign Neymar before he joined their arch-rivals. And even in the last few years, there have been pertinent talks of Real Madrid trying to sign the trickster from Barcelona, with Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos also urging Neymar to make the switch.

With these latest reports of Neymar regretting his Barcelona move, it can be said that the 25-year-old has sensed a power shift in Spain, with his club not as dominant as it used to be. It would be interesting to see if Neymar would entertain an offer from Real Madrid – if they make an offer-  and risk the wrath of the fans.

Luis Figo was the last footballer to make a switch from Barcelona to Real Madrid. Could Neymar possibly be the next?

    It is unfair for the Barca star to want Real Madrid because of its current form. Real last won La Liga in 2012. In between, Barca won 3 while Athletico got the other. Barca also got CL success during that time. So, Neymar must give the REAL reason he wants away from Barca, not lack of success. I am a Real Madrid and Neymar fan, but I don’t think Neymar’s want away decision is Barca’s lack of success. One season without La Liga cannot dent Barca’s status in Spain.
