Neymar's time at Paris Saint-Germain has been odd.
According to French and Spanish media Neymar has reportedly told PSG directors he wants to quit the club after only one season.
Real have only added to the confusion by openly courting the Brazil global.
"Expectations are big ahead of the World Cup", Neymar told Zico, in an interview for the former Brazil international's official YouTube channel.
"I am sorry that you've had to come all the way out from the centre of Paris to ask that question, wondering what they'll say and if anyone will say anything", he said, reports Marca.
"I don't believe so, as what we care about is what we are doing at the moment".
