Neymar not set on La Liga switch
Nov 15, 2012 4:15 PM GMT
Neymar has been linked to Barcelona and Real Madrid for some time now, but the player said he is open to moving to clubs outside of Spain.
The Santos prodigy is expected to depart Brazilian domestic football in the enar future, and he said he is open to a move to either the Premier League or the Serie A, although there's nothing concrete from any team in Europe right now.
"They are both big countries with great teams and great national teams. I don't have any (specific) choices right now," Neymar said after Brazil drew 1-1 against Colombia in a friendly on Wednesday.
"I do dream about playing in Europe, but there's nothing concrete at this time... maybe in the future."
Neymar has left quite an impression on the football world since debuting for Santos in 2009, scoring 52 goals in 99 games for the Brazilian side.
He is arguably the game's third best player globally after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and some have even claimed that he can better both after he heads abroad to Europe.
Neymar has been linked with Chelsea in the past, especially after the Blues' top executives flew down to Brazil to try to convince the forward to join the team in London.
The talks were unsuccessful as he was advised by many in Brazil to wait for a move to La Liga instead as a move to the more physical Premier League might not suit the slender attacker.
