Messi: Neymar joining Real Madrid would be 'terrible'

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.

Paris Saint-Germain's Brazilian forward Neymar poses with his trophy after receiving the Best Ligue 1 Player award during a TV show on May 13, 2018 in Paris, as part of the 27th edition of the UNFP (French National Professional Football players Union) trophy ceremony.

When asked if he was open to a move from Barca after playing for the senior team for 14 long years, Messi said, "I am not tempted to leave Barcelona".

Zinedine Zidane insists "every important player wants to play for Real Madrid", but refused to entertain the idea of launching an audacious bid for Neymar. "What I miss from Barcelona and about Barcelona is these two [Messi and Suarez], due to the joy we had on a daily basis".

"It's a very hard time, right?" I will not be better anywhere else, this is the best team in the world. Thanks to God, I have this new opportunity to become world champion with my country. "It is my goal".
