Madrid: Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has reacted to the question regarding Messi’s comments on Neymar’s future.

The Frenchman said in the press conference prior to the final La Liga game against Villarreal before taking on Liverpool in the Champions League final at Kiev on May 26.

Lionel Messi had earlier conceded that it “would be terrible” if Neymar, his former Barcelona teammate joined Real Madrid this summer, as the Argentine shared his opinion on the ongoing speculation surrounding the Brazilian’s future.
Neymar left Barcelona for French champions Paris Saint-Germain in a record-breaking €222m transfer that left many in in Catalonia and La Liga devastated.
Zidane: Neymar? I’m not the one who’ll say anything regarding this. I’m sorry but my answer has nthing to do with what you’re asking me. After this season, the club will decide. Compatible with Cristiano? Good players always play well together, on the pitch there’ll be chemistry. pic.twitter.com/gLd37eHcNZ
