Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar stormed out of the mixed zone on Wednesday after he was asked a question about links to Real Madrid.
The Brazilian spoke to journalists at the Parc des Princes after he played a starring role in the team's 7-1 thumping of Celtic in the UEFA Champions League, netting two goals. But when he was asked about Los Blancos, the former Barcelona man responded by saying, per David F. Sanchidrian of AS: "For f--k's sake. Have you got nothing else to talk about?"
Neymar didn't take any more questions and walked off, as we can see, courtesy of Goal UK:

It seems Neymar doesn't appreciate questions on links to Real Madrid! https://t.co/o4gcxBVPbm2017-11-23 10:42:30
According to Mundo Deportivo (h/t Football Espana), Neymar added "this subject is very tiresome from you" before he strode off.
There has been some speculation linking the forward with a return to Spain, with Francesc Aguilar of Mundo Deportivo recently reporting Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has spoken to Neymar's father about a potential future transfer (h/t Matt Maltby of MailOnline).
As we can see below, Los Blancos captain Sergio Ramos has made his position on Neymar clear:

It appears as though the man himself is fed up with the speculation, though, as was evident in the way he responded to the question on Wednesday.
After all, the forward is less than halfway through his first season as a PSG player, having made the move from Barcelona in the summer for a world-record fee. And while some reports may have suggested he isn't content with life in the French capital, his performances on the pitch say otherwise.
Neymar has lived up to the billing since arriving at the Parc des Princes, bringing the productivity that made him such a success at Barcelona to Paris. As Tom Williams of AFP observed, the Brazil international has been a major success:
Tom Williams @tomwfootball
Thirteen goals in 14 PSG games for Neymar now. If it’s true that he dislikes his coach and longs to return to Barcelona, he’s doing a good job of disguising it.2017-11-22 20:14:31
The forward will always command a huge degree of attention, and a possible switch to Real Madrid is a talking point for journalists.
Still, as Williams noted, there has been so much speculation engulfing Neymar since he arrived in Paris that it's not a shock to see him decide against answering questions about it.
What we've seen in 2017-18 is a footballer willing to give everything for PSG in pursuit of major prizes.
