Monaco star Cesc Fabregas has confidently stated that Neymar has the “Ronaldinho-level qualities.” Neymar, 28, left Barcelona in 2017 after achieving a spectacular £200 m world record heading to Paris Saint-Germain.
Fabregas, 33, confessed to being a major admirer of Neymar and made a fascinating link with Ronaldinho, a Brazilian legend.
During an Instagram Live session the Monaco midfielder explained: “Neymar is an outlier, he has qualities at Ronaldinho level.
Cesc Fabregas said Neymar, a former player in Barcelona, must be held in the same regard as Ronaldinho, “A Legend In The Club.” The winger started a four-year stay at Camp Nou in Barcelona, scoring 105 goals in 186 games, and helped the club win eight trophies, including the 2015 Champions League.
Neymar left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain in a world-record deal in 2017 but has since been constantly linked to his return to Spain, and Fabregas believes he has all he wants to be “the best.”
He’s a hero, making a difference when he needs to. It’s been a while since I played with him, and he recently killed us in two games with PSG, “Fabregas told Marca.” Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and the rest liked to have him in the squad because he could give you an assist or dribble at any moment, something that’s difficult in a matched game.
“He’s got all to be the best. He’s a nice kid off the field. He’s like a child; he’s really happy and loves life.” Neymar is reportedly willing to take a 50 percent pay cut to ensure Barca returns this summer.
Following eight years with the Gunners, Fabregas signed for Barcelona in 2011 and spent three seasons at the Camp Nou.
The Spanish World Cup winner indicated his departure from Barca will be decided on his former side losing out on Atletico Madrid’s league title.
