Star 'not yet 100%' but ready to play for Brazil

Pep Guardiola and Neymar

Pep Guardiola and Neymar

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar missed the chance to feature under Guardiola at Barcelona, joining the club a year after the Catalan had left his role as head coach.

"It's going to take a bit more time for this fear to go away, but I'm ready to play". Nothing can stop me from doing so.

Brazil global, Neymar Jnr., has referred to recent rumours linking him to Real Madrid as "nonsense".

He added: "I feel good physically".

In 2016, the Brazilian said: "Guardiola is a guy that I really admire and who I would love to work with" and he has reiterated that sentiment again.

Moving to all OLED screens next year would make it hard to keep iPhones affordable for mass market consumers. The report sent shares of Apple's two main LCD suppliers, Japan Display and Sharp, into a downward spin.

It was expected Neymar would be back for Brazil's friendly against Croatia on June 3, but the 26-year-old is not quite at full fitness just yet. "Of course he needs a little time to adjust", Lasmar said as quoted by Globoesporte.

Neymar featured for his country on home turf at the 2014 World Cup but a back injury ruled him out of the 7-1 semi-final humiliation against eventual winners Germany. "I hope (the dream) ends with the title". On Wednesday, he joined the national training camp in Teresopolis, outside Rio de Janeiro.

Asked about speculation linking him to Real Madrid, he answered: "My focus is Brazil, people are saying nonsense and that is not worth answering".

Brazil's 20-man squad will fly to London later Sunday to continue its World Cup preparations.

The squad will stay in the United Kingdom until June 8, before flying to Vienna for a friendly match against Austria.
