And despite the club's consistent efforts to brush off such talk, Neymar remained coy over his club future for next season, insisting to Le Parisien his sole focus was returning from injury ahead of Brazil's trip to the World Cup.

He overshadowed striking partners Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe, and Marseille's Florian Thauvin in the vote to receive the award from fellow Brazilian Ronaldo.

"I know nothing. Nothing more than you, nothing at all".

PSG would have been boosted in their hopes of keeping hold of Neymar, as the 26-year-old posted a picture of himself in next season's kit.

In an interview published Friday on former Brazil legend Zico's YouTube channel, Neymar said he is in a race against time to get mentally ready for the tournament in Russian Federation.

United also have no qualms about matching the £30 million per year salary that the player now earns, further reinforcing their status as the most powerful club in world football.

According to reports, Neymar has told his teammates that he won't return to PSG after the World Cup in Russian Federation.




"I spend my whole life, every transfer window, talking about it".

"All transfer windows, we talk about these things", Neymar told L'Equipe. It's a bit annoying.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said on Saturday he was "2000 per cent" sure that the former Santos forward would be at the club next season, but speculation continues to grow.

"My goal now is the World Cup".

PSG's dominance of the French game this season was reflected in the awards. I have changed universe. Mbappe has netted 13 since joining from deposed champion Monaco.

Neymar is attracting interest from Real Madrid, with the player having allegedly informed the La Liga giants in December he is ready to force a move away from PSG.

PSG's Unai Emery also won the coach of the season award after guiding his players to 29 wins, five draws and three defeats from 37 matches for a total of 92 points.
