Barcelona star Neymar has sensationally unveiled his ambition to play in the Premier League one day.
The Barcelona star is always linked with a move to the Premier League and his recent statement will surely come as a blessing in disguise for the English giants. Neymar further added that the prospect of playing under the managers like Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho would attract any top class player.
While talking to Sun Sport, the 25-year-old attacker 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.”
He further stated that it is the surprising nature of the Premier League that attracts him most and also highlighted Leicester City’s 2015-16 campaign where they were crowned as the Champions of England.
“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.”
Barcelona made a historic, yet very controversial, comeback against PSG at Cam Nou in the second leg of the Champions League’s round of 16 and Neymar was spot on to bag a brace against Unai Emery’s men. They have now been scheduled to travel to Turin to face Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus in the quarterfinal round of the tournament.
Barcelona will be engaging themselves heavily in the upcoming transfer window as Luis Enrique will be vacating his spot. Besides him, Lionel Messi’s contract speculation is heating by the day and the fact that the Catalonians have failed to find a perfect replacement of Xavi has come down to haunt them this season.
Neymar, on the other hand, has delivered a huge statement on his part. Guardiola and Mourinho, are you listening?
