Neymar, 21, has long been linked with a move to Europe and said it would be his ambition to play there.

Although Santos hope to persuade the Brazil international to extend his deal with them, he told Esporte Espetacular: "I dream of playing in Europe, for a big club like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea.

"Who wouldn't dream about playing alongside [Lionel] Messi, Xavi [Hernandez] and [Andres] Iniesta? They're all great players.”

But he added: "I don't know where I would fit in if I joined Barca, but I know my place is at Santos right now.

“There's no point in speculating when I'll leave Santos. I'll leave when I want to.”
