Brazil captain Neymar is seemingly absolutely furious that journalists keep asking him about a move away from Paris Saint Germain to Real Madrid. The forward who played an instrumental role in PSG’s rout of Celtic in the UEFA Champions League in Paris - swore at journalists before storming away from an interview after being asked about a move back to Spain.

The Brazilian became the world’s most expensive footballer when PSG activated his buy-out clause and paid Barcelona €222million to land him at the Parc de Princes.

When Neymar was asked about the reports after his performance in PSG’s 7-1 destruction of Celtic on Wednesday, he wasn’t impressed.

“For f***’s sake,” he is widely quoted as saying. “Have you got nothing else to talk about?”

The thrashing of Celtic at the Parc des Princes maintained PSG’s three-point lead over Bayern Munich in Group B. They need a point at the Allianz Arena on match day six to guarantee top spot.

The striker’s PSG stint has not been a bed of roses though, as rumours of rifts between him and striking partner Edinson Cavani, as well as coach Unai Emery surfaced a while ago.

All parties have been swift to play down such talk, but it has not stopped suggestions emerging that Madrid could make a stunning swoop for the star striker.

Since his arrival in Paris, Neymar has had a hand in 21 goals in his first 14 games for his team who are sitting pretty atop Ligue 1. Neymar who leads the attack with Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe for the Parisians has helped his team smash the record for the most goals scored by any team in the group stages of the Champions League, and that too with a game in hand.

Paris Saint Germain have played 5 games in Europe and won all of them, scoring a whopping 24 goals while conceding only one and are set to end first round at the top of their group which also has Bayern Munich.
