Neymar, 20, is one of the most highly rated young players in world football and has attracted the interest of a raft of top clubs. Barcelona remain favourites for his signature, and there have been rumours that there is already an agreement in place for a move to the Camp Nou.

However, Neymar was recently quoted as saying that there are "maybe five clubs" in the world - among them Barca, Real Madrid and Chelsea - that he would be obliged to consider and it appears PSG may be among that elite list.

"Paris is a beautiful city," he told Telefoot. Asked whether he could one day join PSG, he said: "Maybe. It would be a great honour, but I am very happy at Santos."

Ibrahimovic, 31, is one of the club's marquee signings and Neymar says he would love an opportunity to play on the same team with such a player. "Ibrahimovic is one of the best players in the world today and I dream to play with major players," he added.

Santos president Luis Alvaro de Oliveira Ribeiro recently said that there is no agreement with Barca and he has revealed he would encourage the player to move to the Ligue 1 side.

"If Neymar comes to me and asks for advice on PSG, I would definitely recommend going there," he said.
