Ronaldo feels the time is right for Santos whiz Neymar to move to Europe.
Real Madrid and Barcelona are chasing the Brazil international, though Manchester City and Chelsea have also made their interest know in the last month.
Ronaldo, who played for both Madrid and Barca, as well as AC Milan and Inter Milan in a glittering career, is adamant, however, that Neymar needs to leave for Europe to fulfil his vast potential.
Ronaldo told ESPN : “Leaving aside selflessness and patriotism, Neymar has to look at the things which will help him conquer the world,”.
“If he can play in Europe the way he does in Brazil, very soon he would be the best player in the world.”
“I cannot decide for him,” he added.
“But it is clear that if Neymar came to me for advice I would say the best thing is to go to Europe and choose the best team for him.
“I hope Neymar is intelligent and is not just limited to Brazil.”
