And Wagner Ribeiro concedes the behaviour of Barca president Sandro Rosell has left him unimpressed.
"I did not like the way Rosell has behaved. He went to speak directly with the player and his father when he was with the Brazil squad," revealed Ribeiro.
Ribeiro also barked: "I am totally in favor of negotiating with Real Madrid. I am familiar with Florentino Perez from the time he took Robinho to the club. Also, when Neymar was 13, he trained 15 days with Real Madrid and the club showed an interest in signing him, but his father advised him to stay then with Santos.
"So if I had to choose one of the two, I would choose Real Madrid."
