Real Madrid full-back Dani Carvajal is ready to save a locker for Neymar if the European champions sign the Paris Saint-Germain star.

Neymar, 26, has been linked with a move to Madrid after spending just one season at Ligue 1 winners PSG, the club he joined from Barcelona.

Carvajal said he would welcome the Brazil international to the Santiago Bernabeu if Madrid president Florentino Perez was eager to sign the star forward.

"If he was born to play in Madrid, I don't know," he told Cadena SER. "Madrid always wants the best in the world. If the president is determined to sign him, we will have to save a locker."

Madrid is also linked with a move for Alvaro Odriozola, the Real Sociedad right-back who would likely put pressure on Carvajal for his spot.

But Carvajal said he would be happy to see his Spain team-mate join him at Madrid.

"If the coach [Julen Lopetegui] and the president believe it necessary, welcome," he said. "I think he is a great player, young, with good defensive skills. He's a very complete player."
