Speaking from Brazil's training camp ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation, the PSG striker has moved to state that he would one day like to play in a Guardiola side.

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.

"My focus is Brazil, people are talking nonsense and that is not worth answering", Neymar was quoted as saying by espnfc at Brazil's football confederation headquarters in Rio de Janeiro.

The forward acknowledged that he is not yet in his best shape, stating: "I'm not yet at 100 per cent".

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.

Things could change if Neymar becomes available, although Guardiola may not want to upset the balance of his squad too much with the necessary sales it would take to raise the capital for the 26-year-old. That will come with time.

Neymar has not played since a 3-0 league win over Marseille in February having had to undergo surgery on a fractured metatarsal.

"The fear I feel is because I have stopped for three months, but it won't prevent me".

"Of course I'm adapting again, but nothing is too serious".

"I'm ready to play".

Brazil's 20-man squad will fly to London later Sunday to continue its World Cup preparations.
