Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos has discussed the prospect of Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar plying his trade for Los Blancos one day and insists he would "open the door" to the former Barcelona star if he one day wanted to return to Spain.
Neymar joined PSG from the Blaugrana for a world-record transfer fee in the summer and has enjoyed a productive start to life in the French capital, but there have been recent suggestions of unrest between him and the rest of the squad at the Parc des Princes, who are reportedly irritated by the privileges afforded to the Brazilian.
Such talk has led to questions over Neymar's long-term future and PSG, with Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos recently fuelling the flames by saying the former Barcelona superstar would be welcome at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Reports from Spain claimed that Neymar's father recently met with Real president Florentino Perez, and the long-standing Madrid chief may see the Brazilian as a potential replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who has signalled his intention to leave the Spanish capital and has endured a rather underwhelming start to the season.
Ramos, who suffered a broken nose against Atletico Madrid on Saturday (18 November) claimed he would try to sign his former Barcelona nemesis without hesitation.
Ceballos, who joined Real Madrid from Real Betis in the summer, echoed his skipper's sentiments and would have no problem accepting Neymar's Barcelona past and welcoming him as a part of the Real Madrid squad.
"Madrid is where all the best players should play and Neymar is among them," Ceballos told Cadena Ser.
"I heard our captain [Ramos] said that he would be welcomed at the club and you have to agree. I would open the door to him for a move to Madrid."
Neymar has scored 11 goals and provided seven assists for PSG, who would no doubt be reluctant to lose their expensive acquisition just a few months after prising him away from Barcelona.
Real Madrid may be in the hunt for a new star name soon amid uncertainty over the futures of Ronald and Gareth Bale, whose fitness concerns have led to speculation over a potential exit from the Bernabeu, but their immediate focus will be on their stuttering league campaign having fallen 10 points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona after drawing 0-0 with city rivals Atletico Madrid on Saturday.
