  • Neymar Says He's Always Wanted to Work with Pep Guardiola

But the Brazil star has dampened speculation over a move to Los Blancos ahead of the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The 26-year-old is the key man for a star-studded Selecao squad, which includes Philippe Coutinho, Gabriel Jesus, Marquinhos, Marcelo, Casemiro and Roberto Firmino.

"Neymar's shown that he's world class", said Asensio.

Neymar was linked with a move to Los Blancos nearly as soon as he arrived in France, despite formerly plying his trade for the Spanish giants' bitter rivals FC Barcelona.

Various reports have indicated that he is a huge transfer target of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez despite the fact it would take in excess of £200million to sign him.

Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona for a world record fee of €222 million last summer, has been consistently linked with a move to the Bernabeu this summer. That will come with time.

Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp described the goals as "quite unusual ". The scenes are still running through my head again and again. These goals cost us the title, basically".

As reported by Catalan newspaper Sport, the former Barcelona man lamented the fact he arrived at the Camp Nou after Guardiola's departure: "I have always wanted to work with Guardiola".

"Physically I'm okay, my foot is fine", he admitted.

"It's going to take a bit more time for this fear to go away, but I'm ready to play". I am adapting to a few things.

"Playing in the World Cup is a dream, I hope it won't be interrupted once again".

Brazil - looking to win their first World Cup since 2002 - start their Group E campaign on June 17 when they face Switzerland.
