Sergio Ramos admits life would be easier for Real Madrid if Neymar left Barcelona in a world record move to Paris Saint-Germain.

But Barca should have been out of sight on the balance of play as Neymar shot wide after being played through by Luis Suarez off a counter-attack, while Messi fired straight at Navas from six yards after leaving the Madrid defence trailing.

The Sunday Times understands that Neymar Santos Sr has asked PSG to delay formal negotiations on the transfer from Barcelona until after July 31.

Ramos said, "I don't know, everybody is free to decide their own future", Ramos said. It would be less of a problem for us. "I think he is a great player and a key man for Barcelona and it's up to him to decide his future", he concluded.

Having himself joined PSG this summer, Dani Alves is keen to play alongside Neymar in France.

The shirt change itself has only fueled rumors that Neymar is indeed on the move.

While Barcelona finished their preseason with wins against Manchester United, Juventus and Real Madrid the U.S. tour became secondary to the transfer saga.

According to numerous reports, Neymar then spent 15 minutes in the Real Madrid dressing room saying goodbye to Barcelona's rivals.

"I try to keep him calm because in these times when you listen to people from all over you can go insane".

"Decisions are for the courageous and I am the bravest, deciding to leave Barcelona and Juventus".

Lionel Messi "said an emotional goodbye to Neymar and wished him good luck for his new adventure in Ligue 1", according to Don Balon in Spain, which adds that the pair "have become good friends during their time together".
