Former Real Madrid midfielder Guti thinks Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar will end up at the Spanish outfit in the future.

The Brazilian swapped Barcelona for PSG in the summer for a world-record fee but speculation is already rife that Neymar will head back to Spain.

Reports over the last month in Marca have suggested that any deal would set Real back £355million in transfer and signing-on fees Рwith the summer of 2019 mooted as a potential departure date.

And Guti reckons the reports aren’t so far off the mark but he hopes Neymar doesn’t arrive as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

“I like Neymar, but if that means Ronaldo leaving, then no,” Guti told Spanish TV show¬†El Chiringuito de Jugones. “At Real Madrid you have to be the best in the world and Neymar is.

“I think he is more motivated and I think he will continue to be so. He knows that he won’t come to a better place. I think Neymar will go to Real Madrid. Who knows if [Karim] Benzema will be the one who goes to PSG. I think Ronaldo will continue here though.”

On whether he would turn down the chance to take charge of the La Liga giants, Guti said: “This is the last chance for Real Madrid, but I hope there is sanity and that it isn’t Zidane’s last chance. We cannot forget what he has done. It is also PSG’s last chance as it isn’t worth winning Ligue 1 or the French Cup. Zidane must continue, but how can I not want to coach Real Madrid one day?”
