Sergio Ramos wants Neymar to leave Barcelona as it would be less of a problem for Real Madrid amid links with Paris Saint-Germain.
Neymar's future at Barca is in serious doubt with Ligue 1 side PSG ready to meet the Brazilian's €222million release clause.
The 25-year-old showed why he is the subject of interest after dazzling against bitter rivals Madrid at the International Champions Cup on Saturday, setting up two goals in the 3-2 triumph.
Asked about Neymar's future post-game, Madrid captain Ramos said: "I do not know, everyone is free to choose their future.
"I hope [he leaves]. It would be less of a problem for us."
Ramos, who made his first pre-season appearance for Madrid, added: "I changed the shirt with him and I hope it is the last one I have used with Barca."
