Barcelona ace Neymar is urging Real Betis midfielder Dani Ceballos to pull out of a move to Real Madrid.
Real are expected to announce the signing of Ceballos over the next 24 hours, despite late interest from Barca.
However, Neymar has stepped into the issue, making it clear that the midfielder would be welcome at the Nou Camp.
He told El Mundo Deportivo: “He is a great player and we know his talent. I hope he signs with us.”
Real Madrid are offering €18m for Ceballos – €3m more than the player’s buyout clause.
