Neymar worried about foot as he prepares to return from injury

Neymar's former teammate Messi, in an interview with Argentine TV channel TyC Sports, said, "It would be bad, because of everything he means to Barcelona".

And since moving to France, Neymar has been in fine form as he helped PSG to a league title and securing Ligue 1 Player of the Season.

Sao Paulo: Brazilian striker Neymar said getting fit for the World Cup following surgery has been the biggest challenge of his career and he is also anxious about how his injured foot will respond to top-class competition.

Messi told TyC Sports that "it would be bad, for all that Ney means to Barcelona".

Neymar, 26, became the world's most expensive player last summer after Paris Saint-Germain triggered his £198m activation clause, though the capital club's talisman has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent months.

Should Real Madrid wish to actually deliver the "huge blow" to Messi and their rivals at Barcelona, they may have to get past the Emir of Qatar.

Messi said that Brazil is most likely to win the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation because they have really good players, a very steadfast defence and strikers who "kill you".

Messi also admitted signing Neymar "make Real Madrid even stronger from a football point of view", before adding of the rumours, "I speak with him, so he already knows what I think".

"I am not tempted to leave Barcelona".

Brazil's 23-members football team squad has been announced for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which will take place in Russian Federation. "I do not need to go to another team to prove anything".

"I faced him with Monaco [in the Champions League in 2016-17]", he told Le Parisien.

"It's a weight that we carry and we want to overcome it", he said.
