Neymar admits Europe move would be a 'dream'

The Selecao starlet netted, before missing a penalty against Colombia in New Jersey on Thursday morning, and maintains that he does not have any concrete offers on the table
Neymar has admitted a switch to a European club would be a "dream", but insisted he does not have any firm offers to leave Santos.

The Samba starlet has been long linked with a switch to either Real Madrid or Barcelona, but is also attracting heavy interest from Serie A and the Premier League with Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini recently refusing to rule out a move for the 20-year-old.

Neymar has already played 200 games for Santos, and played on British shores for the Selecao during the 2012 Olympic Games football tournament.

When asked if a move to England or Italy appealed, the forward told reporters: "They are both big countries with great teams and great national teams. I don't have any [specific] choices right now.

"I do dream about playing in Europe, but there's nothing concrete at this time. Maybe in the future."

Neymar was speaking after Brazil's friendly with Colombia in New Jersey that saw him equalise Juan Cuadrado's opener before missing a penalty just 15 minutes later, with the match finishing 1-1.
