Neymar, who is valued at €199.2 million (£174.39m) by the CIES Football Observatory, is one of the best forwards on the planet and is hoping to win the World Cup with Brazil.
Former United and Denmark international goalkeeper Schmeichel, who is a Premier League legend and won the league title five times with the Red Devils, has stated on Twitter that he would have 26-year-old Tottenham attacking midfielder Eriksen in his team over PSG forward Neymar.
Any day of the week, and I’ve said this before, I would have Eriksen over Neymar. Who’s with me?— Peter Schmeichel (@Pschmeichel1) June 21, 2018
Eriksen, who cost Tottenham £11.5 million in transfer fees when they signed him from Ajax in the summer of 2013 as reported by BBC Sport, is a hugely creative footballer who has been on top of his form for a while now.
However, Neymar is the better footballer, is more talented, can conjure up more moments of absolute magic and is a serial winner, having won La Liga, Ligue 1, the Champions League and the FIFA Confederations Cup among other major honours.
