'Good players are always compatible, ' he said.

Brazil star Neymar's chances of recovering before the World Cup is increasing every day but his future with Paris Saint-Germain is now under the cloud.

Real President Florentino Perez has made no secret of his desire to recruit Neymar, sparking daily rumours of transfer moves for the Brazilian star who played for Spanish rivals Barcelona from 2013-2017 before moving to French champions PSG.

Neymar has previously said he expects to be fit for Brazil's World Cup opener against Switzerland on June 17 but he has now expressed doubts over his mental state following the injury.

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane feels that Neymar and Ronaldo would have no problems playing together.

A statement on the PSG website confirmed that Neymar would train with the ball again after he fractured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot in February and is looking now to prove his fitness ahead of the World Cup with Brazil. But not now, I can't tell you absolutely anything about it. So good players can always play together. But I can't talk about anything like that (Neymar) at the moment.

"It's the last game of the season at our stadium and we want to give our fans one last treat by winning the match", Zidane said in quotes reported on the club's official website. I haven't asked Neymar personally because I don't get involved in these things. "Hopefully the season will end well and the rest will be discussed later".

As far as Ronaldo and Neymar co-existing, Zidane doesn't see any issue arising.

"They deserve it and that's what we are going to try to do tomorrow".
