Neymar admits move to Europe is his dream

Neymar has admitted a switch to a European club would be a personal “dream”, but insisted he does not have any firm offers to leave Santos.

The Samba starlet has long been linked with a switch to either Real Madrid or Barcelona, but is also attracting heavy interest from Serie A, Paris Saint-Germain and the Premier League with Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini recently refusing to rule out a move for the 20-year-old.

Neymar has already played 200 games for Santos, and played on British shores for the Selecao during the 2012 Olympics.

When asked if a move to England or Italy appealed to him, the forward told reporters: “They are both big countries with great teams and great national teams. I don’t have any [specific] choices right now.

“I do dream about playing in Europe, but there’s nothing concrete at this time. Maybe in the future.”

Neymar was speaking after Brazil’s friendly with Colombia in New Jersey that saw him equalise Juan Cuadrado’s opener before missing a penalty just 15 minutes later, with the match finishing 1-1.
