PSG vs. Real Madrid: Marcelo says he thinks Neymar 'will play for Real Madrid one day' ahead of match
The Brazilian defender would like to see his buddy in Madrid
The rivalry between Barcelona and Real Madrid is one of the fiercest in all of sports. It's why it's always rare to see players play for both clubs during a career span.
