Real Madrid defender Marcelo would

Ahead of a timely return to fitness before the World Cup with Brazil this summer, Neymar will remain a hot topic of debate in the transfer market.

Despite an injury-plagued season, Neymar has still managed to bag 28 goals in 30 games for the Ligue 1 club, and he's on schedule to face Croatia in the coming weeks.

"Nobody is as scared as me", he said on Tuesday.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker has not played since February, but knows that soccer-mad Brazil hopes he is fit to lead its team to glory in the World Cup. Brazil will need him to show all the skills that made him the world's most expensive footballer and versatile footballer, with a record €222 million (US$264 million) transfer from Barcelona to PSG last August.

And Perez has long coveted Neymar, having recognised earlier than most that the Brazilian's mix of natural talents on and off the pitch makes him an ideal Galactico.

'Thank God I have this further opportunity, this further chance, to try to be a world champion for my country, which is a dream that I have had since childhood.

"If Neymar doesn't leave PSG he will never win anything important", the 46-year-old told Gazzetta dello Sport.

Marquinhos who will also travel to Russian Federation for the FIFA World Cup with Neymar added that there may have been issues of adapting to life in France and a row with Cavani but explained that is all settled, "Maybe there were some times where he had trouble adapting, but we, the coach and the players, tried to manage that". Brazil are aiming to add a sixth star on their shirts.

Brazil begin their Group E campaign against Switzerland on June 17 and will also take on Costa Rica and Serbia in the round-robin phase.

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.
