GETTYNeymar has revealed the truth behind reports he might join Real Madrid

Neymar insists his "dream" of winning the Ballon d'Or is outweighed by a desire to lead Paris Saint-Germain to a maiden Champions League triumph.

"He might have believed it was easier to join PSG first rather join Madrid directly from Barcelona, I hope this is the case and in football you can never know".

On the pitch, Neymar scored on Friday for Brazil as they beat Japan 3-1 in a friendly held in Lille, France.

Asked about Neymar, Madrid captain Ramos told Cadena Ser: "I like to have the best and it's clear Neymar is one of them".

"Apart from Newell's Old Boys, because I am a supporter of Rosario Central, I could play anywhere".

The friendship and brotherhood between Neymar, Messi and Suarez was why it was so difficult to see Neymar leaving Barcelona, Suarez has now revealed in an interview.

But off the pitch, the Brazilian is apparently struggling.

"We are human beings, sometimes we suffer faults and we react in the wrong way".

"I like Jan Oblak at Atletico Madrid; he's been excellent working with a team which does not concede many goals".

He has also netted four goals in the Champions League to lead PSG through to the last 16 with two matchdays remaining.

"I want you to stop inventing stories that I have problems with the coach".

"He [Mourinho] is pretty happy at Man United at the moment - but why not?"

'I had a chat with Tite because every day these things are hurting me.

It will be interesting to see what happens when Juventus come calling for Angel Di Maria in January.

National team coach Tite offered the star forward his backing, stating that Neymar has a positive impact on the Brazil squad and is not a divisive character.

Tite, who replaced Dunga as Brazil boss in June 2016, quashed any notion that he himself had experienced run-ins with the 25-year-old striker.

'It's something that has been bothering me, I even talked about it with Tite. We will do everything so that he can reach it as soon as possible.
