PSG allows recovering Neymar to return to Brazil early

"It stimulates me to see Real in the Champions League [final] and to see others win titles".

FC Barcelona superstar and Argentina captain Lionel Messi have said that seeing his former Barca teammate Neymar end up with arch-rivals Real Madrid will be a "hard blow".

As coach Unai Emery takes charge of his final game before being replaced by Thomas Tuchel, Neymar Jr will also be absent as he continues his recovery from a fractured foot in time to boost Brazil's World Cup challenge.

Speaking to reporters after his side's 6-0 win over Celta Vigo, he said: "I think every important player wants to play at Real Madrid, they all want to come and play here, that's inevitable".

"[But] it motivates me to see Madrid in the Champions League final again; to see them winning leagues".

Even though the French forward just completed his first season with PSG, Los Merengues are convinced that they can snatch the teenager from the Ligue 1 giants during the upcoming transfer window.

Messi and Neymar will be rivals this summer as Argentina and Brazil chase World Cup glory in Russian Federation. He has been out of action since spraining his ankle and fracturing his fifth metatarsal back on February 25, which led him to undergo surgery in Brazil.

The striker said he feared he would miss the June 14-July 15 World Cup Finals in Russian Federation after suffering the injury.

"I've started training with the ball. I fight to win everything and I don't need to go anywhere else to prove anything", he claimed.

"The World Cup is the biggest championship in the world, I just want to play and be a champion". "I am a little exhausted of it now".

The 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup will kick off on June 14th with hosts Russian Federation taking on Saudi Arabia in a Group A encounter at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow.
