Brazilian star admits interest in Chelsea FC move

Updated: March 18, 2013

Brazil star Neymar has revealed that he would love to play for Chelsea or Real Madrid, but also admitted that he would like to play for Barcelona too.

Chelsea are 18/1 to win the Europa League & FA Cup double with

It has been thought for a long time now that the Catalan club were favourites to sign the hottest prospect in the game, but Neymar’s admission that he would love to play for rivals Madrid or Chelsea may put a spanner in the works for a Barcelona move.


“I dream of playing Europe, for a big club like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea,” Neymar said.


“Yes, Barcelona [are the team that impress me the most], who has great players like Xavi, [Andres] Iniesta, [Cesc] Fabregas and Dani Alves. Who wouldn’t dream about playing alongside [Lionel] Messi, Xavi and Iniesta? They’re all great players,” the star pointed out.


It was reported just a few weeks ago that new Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola wanted to sign Neymar for an incredible €86 million but nothing more has come on that and with his comments in the press, a move to Germany now seems to be even more unlikely.


It has been speculated that Neymar won’t leave Santos until the 2014 world cup is over which takes place in Brazil, but the forward refused to be drawn on when he would leave, admitting that he holds all the cards ahead of a possible move.


“There’s no point in speculating when I’ll leave Santos. I’ll leave when I want to. I don’t know where I would fit if I joined Barca, but I know my place is at Santos right now,” the forward stressed.


He also played down comparisons with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and claimed the goal he had set for himself was to try and improve every day, instead of looking to be better than a fellow footballer.


“I try to lay low and keep focused all the time. Some days things go my way, some days they don’t. I can’t be perfect every day. I don’t know if I’ll ever reach the level of Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi, but if I do, I’ll be more than happy. I don’t have this goal of being better than this or that player, I’ll always just want to better myself,” he explained.

      Neymar’s coming to Chelsea will be great, it’ll boost both the team and his career and equate him with big names like Ronald and Messi.

    If Neymer goes to barca, he might be warming the bench. Come to CFC where your place as number 9 is waiting for you. Here, you can play as many matches as you can, couple with world class players like Mata, Hazard, Terry, Luis, Rameris, Oscar, Lampard, Mikel, Cole, etc.

    Neymar should know that chelsea fc is the best option for him. Going to madrid or fc barca will be a calamity to his career.
