The singer insisted on having a word with Neymar and his entourage for a possible move. “Partner, I’m going to talk to Gil Cebola, who lives there with Neymar, let’s talk over the phone. He has to come to Mengão too, because it’s just like him. All those people shouting there: ‘Neymaaaar, êh ôh,’”

Benny on meeting Cristiano Ronaldo

It would be interesting to see how Benney will convince both superstars to join the Brazilian side. Nevertheless, while talking about his super plan, the singer also opened up about his first meeting with CR7.

“It was another very special moment for me when I went to the Santiago Bernabéu. Cristiano was still playing for Real Madrid. I already knew my friend Marcelo, he was very nice to me. The funny thing is, I’m a huge LeBron fan and I wasn’t really into it,” he said.

The singer admitted he didn’t know much about Ronaldo, but was surprised to see his craze. Moreover, he learned about the Portuguese star after having a word with his son. “My son said: ‘Damn, you’re with Cristiano Ronaldo and all’. I said: ‘Yes, but why?’. Then I came to understand the greatness of Cristiano Ronaldo”.
