The Liverpool striker, expected to vie for a spot with Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus, lined up with Paris Saint-Germain's Neymar and Chelsea's Willian in an open session at Tottenham's training center.

Thiago Silva has vowed that Brazil will be physically and mentally prepared when the FIFA World Cup starts in Russian Federation on June 14.

"I feel good physically".

However, the Brazilian says the speculation is completely off the mark. I am adapting in a few things. "Nothing can stop me from doing so", Neymar added.

Asked how well he was feeling now, Neymar answered: "Not 100 percent yet". But that comes with time.

"I'm not 100 percent ready yet, but eventually I will be", the 26-year-old player was quoted as saying by the Brazilian website Globoesporte on Sunday night. I'm still a bit scared of going all out, but there are still several days before our start.

"Playing in the World Cup is a dream, I hope it won't be interrupted once again".

City's rivals Manchester United are another team with deep pockets, and they have also been linked with a move for the Brazil worldwide with Jose Mourinho reportedly willing to shell out £350 million and make him the highest-paid footballer in the process.

Neymar's future at PSG is in doubt even though he joined the French club less than a year ago from Barcelona.

Let me remind you that in the group stage of the upcoming world championship, starting June 14, the team of Titus will play with the teams of Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia.
