Brazil legend Ronaldo has asserted that Santos forward Neymar should move to Europe to further his career.
The 19-year-old prodigy is widely expected to leave his homeland after establishing himself as one of the hottest commodities on the transfer market with his displays for club and country.
Barcelona and Real Madrid have both been credited with an interest in Neymar, who has declared he will not leave Santos before the summer of 2012.
And Ronaldo, who joined PSV at the age of 18, said that his countryman must move to Europe to continue his progression.
"We will see his evolution from the moment he moves to Europe, which will be the most important step in his career," he told Globo.
"He has done everything he can here in Brazil with his talent. I think it would be a shame to limit himself to Brazil only."
