Real Madrid attacker Rodrygo: Neymar wants me to take his No10

Real Madrid attacker Rodrygo Goes admits he's close to PSG star Neymar.

Neymar had already hinted that the 2022 finals could be his last and appears to have relayed that message to his compatriots, with Rodrygo apparently in line to inherit the iconic number 10 shirt.

“Neymar said to me 'I'm already leaving the national team and the 10 is yours'," he told Podpah.

“I didn't even know what to say to him. I was embarrassed, I giggled and didn't even know what to say properly.

"I told him that he must play some more, that I didn't want [him] to [do so] now. And then he laughed."
