This cup has to be mine, says Neymar

He said the national team, seeking a record sixth World Cup, stands out for being "aggressive, scoring goals".

"I don't know if they (Real chiefs) are negotiating for Neymar". He won the Champions League [and] La Liga [titles].

"It would be bad, because of all that Ney means to Barcelona", Messi told Argentina's TyC Sports."If he ends up at Real Madrid it would be a major blow to us".

It was only last summer that Brazilian superstar Neymar Jr left the Camp Nou and joined French giants Paris Saint Germain for a fee of 222 million euros.

The 26-year-old Brazilian's future has been shrouded in speculation throughout the season, with Real Madrid said to be keen on landing the world's most expensive player this summer.

"It's a weight that we carry and we want to overcome it", he said.

And the Argentine admitted seeing his former team-mate at Madrid would be a huge blow. It would make Madrid even stronger from a football point of view.

"I think every important player wants to play at Real Madrid, they all want to come and play here, that's inevitable", said Zidane recently of the rumours.

In an interview with TyCSports, Messi opened up on discussions he has had with Neymar.

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.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has repeatedly insisted Neymar is not for sale and the player himself hinted that he is staying put after modelling the club's new kit for next season.

The 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup will kick off on June 14th with hosts Russian Federation taking on Saudi Arabia in a Group A encounter at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow.

Should he end up joining Real, Neymar will follow in the controversial footsteps of countryman Ronaldo and Luis Figo.
