Neymar has not been affected by the rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid, his Paris Saint-Germain teammate Marquinhos insisted ahead of the sides' Champions League showdown.

"I don't see him as being destabilised. He knows very well how to control his emotions. He handles the pressure and responds on the field," said Marquinhos of his fellow Brazilian at a press conference at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"He is a great person with a great entourage. We leave him to do his job on the field.

"He came to Paris to do great things and tomorrow's (Wednesday's) match is a chance for him."

Madrid left-back Marcelo had earlier done his bit to fuel the speculation, saying: "Madrid fans like good players. Any fan would like to have Neymar in their team."

That was after he gave an interview to Brazilian television saying that his international colleague would one day play for the Spanish giants.
