Asked about Neymar, Manchester City's Ederson told reporters on Wednesday: "We had just one training. And it was yesterday. It was a training session with the ball, so I cannot answer about it.
"Of course Neymar is happy. I don't know if he will play. This is a question that [head coach] Tite must answer. Because he's the only person who can answer if he [Neymar] plays or if he does not play."
Ederson added: "I see him happy. Any player who wears the Brazilian national team shirt is happy.
"I can't talk about this summer market because I don't know what happened. I didn't follow the news very much. So I don't know how to answer you about that. but I know that here, in the Brazilian team, he is happy."
