Marcelo has made a stunning confession claiming that his new Real Madrid teammate Eden Hazard isn't better than Barcelona target Neymar.
Real Madrid signed Hazard in a marque transfer worth up to £130 million. He enjoyed a glittering career in England with Chelsea, but he'll now call Madrid home.

Hazard has excited Zinedine Zidane and fans alike following his performances in training.
However, Marcelo doesn't think he's better than Neymar.
"Eden's a top player," Marcelo said in a recent interview. "A player of high quality and, like Neymar, has the quality to be in the top five.
"He's impressive, you cannot compare them, but Neymar is better for me.
"Neymar is an unpredictable player, very difficult to control. When the defender has imagined a movement to anticipate, he has already thought of another, and this is impossible to defend.
"Having Neymar in Real Madrid would be a huge pleasure, but I'm not the one who decides. Neymar is a great player and Real Madrid always has to do everything to bring the best players in the world," he added.
Neymar continues to attract interest from Barcelona in view to a sensational return to Spain after initial interest from Real Madrid.
The Brazilian attacker has spent just two seasons in Paris but his days in the French capital appear to be numbered.
Barcelona remain in the market for another attacker, despite signing Antoine Griezmann for £107 million, with Neymar high on the club's transfer wish list.
The La Liga champions have offered a reported £90 million plus two players, which includes the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele.
