PSG forward Neymar has revealed he was more hurt than was made public at the 2018 World Cup

PSG and Brazil star striker Neymar said he was "happy" in Paris, but didn't rule out a future move to Real Madrid, in an interview broadcast this Sunday on "Esporte Espetacular".

Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar has suggested that he would find it hard to turn down a move to Real Madrid should the European champions come calling for his signature.

Neymar, who joined PSG from Barcelona in the summer of 2017, has scored 48 times in 53 appearances for his French club, but is now on the sidelines with a foot problem.

The 27-year-old said PSG team-mate Kylian Mbappe will be one of the world's greatest ever players despite the pair both eyeing the biggest individual prizes in the sport.

"Real Madrid is one of the biggest teams in the world, every player perceived to have an interest in the club wants to play for them".

In February he was sentenced for a second time in the anti-corruption operation Lava Jato, this time to 12 years and 11 months. His defense has maintained his innocence and insists that the former head of state is a victim of political persecution.

But I'm not saying I will play for Real Madrid. "Right now I'm very happy in Paris". Everybody knows I have already accomplished my dream which was (playing for) Barcelona. This was always my dream, something that I spoke about since I was little and I managed to accomplish.

"Nowadays I'm very happy [at PSG]".

"I do not feel attracted by any (club), I do not want to leave Paris but, between now and the next three months, nobody knows what will happen", he concluded. If the president comes to talk to you, sometimes the player has no way out.

At the World Cup Neymar scored two goals in five appearances as Brazil were knocked out at the quarter-finals stage. Two guys I'll remember the rest of my life, they are saved in football and in my heart, for all they did for me. "I can't say that it's obvious that I miss the day to day life". I have a very great respect [for the club].

Neymar spent four seasons in LaLiga with Barca, winning the title twice and the Champions League once.
