Brazil star Neymar has hinted that he could one day make a move to the Premier League during an interview in which he listed a handful of clubs that could entice him to make the move.

The forward made his 500th appearance on Sunday, number 176 for Barcelona, and has racked up an impressive 304 goals during his already illustrious career - many of which have easily been goal of the season contenders...

Speaking to the ​Sun at a PokerStars event, the 25-year-old said: "The Premier League is a championship that amazes me. I like the playing style and the teams. And who knows, someday, I would like to play at it, yes. 

"I admire Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool — these are the teams that are always there fighting. And then you have high-level coaches like Mourinho and Guardiola. These are coaches with whom any player would like to work."

The Brazilian then reflected on the remarkable events of last season which demonstrated just how unpredictable the Premier League can be, adding: "In the Premier League you never know who is going to win or who will be champions, it is always a surprise. 

"Leicester are very good. They had a great season last year, they were Prem champions and therefore we need to respect them if we draw them in the Champions League."


Performing in the Champions League is nothing new to Neymar either, who was instrumental in Barcelona-s incredible 6-1 win over PSG, scoring a brace and assisting the vital sixth goal all within the final seven minutes.

Speaking about the win, Neymar made reference to his deadly partnership with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, saying: "The three of us are a good match and thank God we are making history. Even today we keep on wondering what happened there because that night was a historical, wonderful night."

The Brazilian concluded: "We needed a miracle and the god of football gave us a miracle. We celebrated a lot in the changing room and the excitement levels were very high. 

"Then I celebrated with my family and friends. With that game, we must celebrate, there is no other way. I couldn’t go home and sleep."

Whether or not a move away from Barcelona will ever materialise remains to be seen. However, comments like that just might give one of the mentioned clubs the confidence to put in an audacious bid for the winger sometime soon.
