The 19-year-old has enjoyed a fine first season with the Ligue 1 champions, scoring 21 goals and providing 16 assists in 46 appearances in all competitions, and he is arguably the best suited option for Zinedine Zidane's side when considering various factors.

"This injury is hard, and the biggest challenge is right now, going to the World Cup after not playing for three months", the 26-year-old Paris St Germain forward said on a sponsor's social media channel.

"But right now, I'm a coach of these players, and I value what they have done and what they are doing, whenever we have difficulties, they are the ones who are fighting". Now there have been multiple rumors surrounding Neymar's future at PSG claiming that Real Madrid will be the Brazilian's next destination.

However, speaking about the rumours, Neymar's former team-mate Messi revealed it would be disastrous if he did join Real.

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi believes a Neymar move to Real Madrid would be a "huge blow" for the Catalans.

He added that "it is okay that he went the way he did, he won an important title here, he won the Champions League, won the Spanish league". It would make Madrid even stronger from a football point of view.

Brazil star Neymar has admitted he is in "the most difficult" period of his career ahead of his return from injury for the World Cup.

The Brazilian had two reasons to celebrate on Saturday as he also turned 30, but his attention will be quickly drawn to Real's final La Liga match of the season this weekend as the club take on Villarreal at the Estadio de la Ceramica.
