The Brazilian attacker feels his countryman would be wise to pick the Catalans if he harbours the ambition of becoming the best player in the world one dayRobinho believes compatriot Neymar would be better suited to join Barcelona rather than Real Madrid if he were ever to leave Santos for the Primera Division.
The Brazil striker is continually being linked with a move away from his current club, with clubs such as the Blaugrana, Madrid, Juventus, Chelsea and Manchester United reportedly keeping tabs on his situation.
In the eyes of the AC Milan forward, the Catalan giants would serve as the best option for Neymar if he wants to become the best player in the world.
"It will be very difficult for Neymar to become the best player in the world in the Brazilian league. That's why he should make the move to La Liga," Robinho was quoted as saying by Lancenet.
"If he decides to leave Santos and he has the choice to join Real Madrid or Barcelona, I would advise him to pick Barca.
"Barcelona are a great club and Brazilians have always done well there."
Neymar has a contract with Santos until the summer of 2014, but the Peixe have a one-sided option to extend his stay by two years.
