"Everything's going well, thank God, but there's always this fear when you come back. I need to get rid of that fear as soon as possible to arrive at the World Cup."

The Brazil forward was said to have admitted that he misses life at his previous club, where he won a treble in 2015, especially his relationship with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

He said: "There was a game where I dribbled several players and then gave a pass.

"Messi dribbled several players in another play and he (Suarez) tried to do the same dribbling and then a backflip pass.

"We (Neymar and Messi) started to laugh at him. We were so intimate that we could laugh at each other when one couldn't do things. And then he arrives at the locker room and says 'Well, I saw you dribbling and I tried to do the same!'

"The friendship that we had was something very beautiful. What I miss from Barcelona and about Barcelona is these two, due to the joy we had on a daily basis." earlier reported that Neymar might be joining Real Madrid this summer after hinting that he is no more happy at the Parc Des Princes.

He joined the Parisians from Barcelona in a world recorded transfer fee from Barcelona last summer.

However, he is said to be wanted by Manchester United and their city rivals Manchester City, who are ready to contend with the most successful club in Europe for the signature of the star.
