Speaking in an interview with Spanish radio station Onda Cero, Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro spoke to José Ramón de la Morena about life on and off the pitch, including his friendship with Neymar.

“I talk to Neymar almost every day, we play video games together. Neymar is a great player, I wanted him to join Real Madrid.”

Casemiro went on to talk about Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappé: “They’re both great players [Neymar and Mbappé], they’re different players. One of more explosive, better in a one on one; the other is more intelligent and can play deeper.”
