When Nasser Al-Khelaifi's was asked about Neymar’s rumours to Real Madrid, he replied: "I can tell you 100 per cent that Neymar will be at Paris Saint-Germain next summer."

The Brazilian captain expects that a successful campaign at the World Cup will trigger another world record transfer back to La Liga in his prime at the age of 27.

By then Neymar would be on hand to take over as Cristiano Ronaldo would clock 35 while Lionel Messi would be 32 in 2019.
