Sergio Ramos 'hopes' Neymar leaves Barcelona

Neymar has been linked with a possible £195m move to PSG from Barcelona

Neymar swapped shirts with Sergio Ramos and spent 15 minutes inside the Real Madrid dressing room.

Shortly after the knock to Neymar, Lionel Messi opened the scoring for Barcelona, evading Luka Modric with a deft touch and then seeing his shot take a fortuitous deflection off Raphael Varane.

Their training-ground bust-up has acted as a sideshow to Neymar's world-record transfer to PSG, which could be completed by the end of the week if the French outfit agree a payment package with Barcelona.

According to reports, PSG have prepared for Neymar's release clause of 222 million euros.

The 25-year-old was heavily involved in Barca's 3-2 friendly victory over La Liga arch-rivals Real Madrid in Miami on Saturday but speculation over his future has continued to intensify in recent days. Ramos hoped that the Brazilian International leaves.

He added: 'I changed the shirt with him and I hope it is the last one I have used with Barca'.

"I have a good relationship with him", the Los Blancos captain told Marca.

'I told him one thing, which is to be fearless, as this world is for the courageous. It would be less of a problem for us. Everyone is free to decide their own future.

Speaking after netting a stunning free-kick in PSG's Trophee des Champions win over Monaco, Alves said: 'I speak with him every day, but not always about football.

"After nearly two months without touching a ball, you find things a bit trickier, but it's true that I found myself to be well physically and I'm looking forward to regaining my shape in time for the Supercopa". Decisions are for the courageous and I am the bravest, deciding to leave Barcelona and Juventus.
