Neymar made a world record transfer move to Paris-Saint-Germain from Barcelona previous year August, and he has been linked with a move to Real Madrid since January 2018. "I have got more reason to be happy than sad". I have been aware of this responsibility, not only for Brazil, but also in club fotball, since I was 17, 18 years old.

"The guys who come up with these stories seem to know more about my life than I do".

Neymar has responded to the criticism directed towards him with regards to diving and believes people "will never understand".

Summer speculation that Neymar was considering a move to Real Madrid was quickly stamped out by both the La Liga club and the player recently, seemingly putting an end to the rumour for the time being. Having moved from Barcelona to get out of the considerable shadow of Leo Messi and targeting the World Cup in a hope of winning the Ballon D'Or, he rocked up at PSG and was soon obscured by the brilliance of Kylian Mbappé in the most fundamentally hilarious twist of fate in modern football.

"I know what they say about me, I know what I have to do about it but those who are a little closer to me know about the difficulties of being Neymar". "The speculation? The majority of it is invented by the press".

"As for what they [his critics] said, I have to carry on and take it as a joke".

Neymar had a frustrating World Cup as histrionics and play-acting cast him as a villain in Russian Federation.

"The taste of being able to reach what we wanted was great because we knew that we had a good team and quality players to achieve our goal".

However, the PSG hitman further reiterated that he will not change his mind about it as he eagerly looks forward to the new season and expects a lot of silverware.

"We have signed a football legend (Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon) who will bring with him all his experience and that will be a great help for this coming season".
