Argentina star tells Messi he wants to join Barcelona

Neymar is reported to be completely unmotivated by life in Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain

However, there was no doubt that as good as the former VfL Wolfsburg and Schalke 04 man was with his 10 goals and one assist from 24 appearances across all competitions, that PSG still needed attacking reinforcements.

Neymar will be hoping to challenge Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi for the title in the coming years but he insists the club's own ambitions mean more to him.

According to reports from ESPN, Neymar is unhappy with life under PSG head coach Unai Emery, prompting speculation of a sensational switch to La Liga and Champions League titleholders Madrid.

But with PSG having already breezed through to the Champions League's knockout stages, the 25-year-old's priority is to replicate the success he enjoyed with Barca in 2014-15.

"He would bring a lot of quality to our team, I would open the door if he wants to join in winter".

After less than six months in Ligue 1, 11 goals, a sending off and an extraordinary on-pitch contretemps with a team-mate, the flighty forward and his financially savvy father are already eyeing another escape route paved with gold.

The decision to sign Neymar and Mbappe were understandable for a number of reasons, but the choice to boot Draxler out of the starting XI was not. There will always be those who do not like him, and others who admire him. I have reacted in the wrong way in my career, but we must not question someone's nature.

"We have been working together for a year and a half, and I'm tired of hearing that Tite has problems with Neymar", he explained.

"I can speak of his character, his nature and the great heart Neymar has".

Today, it all got to be too much for the player who 'exploded with rage' in response to some of these questions.
