Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro has insisted his Brazilian team-mate Neymar would "always be welcome at Real Madrid".

The midfield destroyer hopes that Neymar does join the La Liga Champions next summer, with reports of Brazilian being unsettled coming in from PSG.

It is believed that Neymar could cost the Spaniards about €400 million (R6.6 billion), but president Florentino Perez apparently feels letting these two players go the other way could minimise costs.

While both Neymar and Casemiro are compatriots for Brazil, the two have been foes for a long time with the 25-year-old playing against Real Madrid numerous times during his tenure with Barcelona.

'He's a star. He knows what he's doing. He's a great player and he'll always be welcome at Real Madrid.

'I keep hearing that Tite has problems with Neymar and I am exhausted of hearing that... we are exhausted of it, ' the 56-year-old Brazilian said.

"I came to help and to be happy, I didn't come to upset anyone or cause trouble".

'But we have a great group'.

Brazil's draw against England completed a fine year for Tite's men, who dominated CONMEBOL qualifying to reach the World Cup. A frustrating game with Brazil missing key chances through Neymar who has only one goal in six games, while England missed the presence of Harry Kane.

"I keep hearing that Tite has problems with Neymar and I am exhausted of hearing that... we are exhausted of it", he said. We did not give them any chances.
