Neymar Happy To Stay At FC Barcelona As Long As...

By Keegan Kruger - May 17, 2017 05:01 PM @KeeganKruger

FC Barcelona superstar Neymar has hinted he is in for a long stay at the Catalan club as long as the best players are playing alongside him.

Neymar's future at the Catalan giants has been questioned a few times this season, but he has signed a deal that will keep him contracted to the club until 2021.

The former Santos star has now insisted that he just wants to play with the best players in the world, and he was quick to highlight that he is currently doing so.

"All I want to do is play with the best players in the world – and the best of all is Leo Messi," Neymar told France Football.

"It has been a great season for me. I even think I have had my best season since I arrived here. I do not know if I have reached a new level, it is hard to have that judgement when you are on the pitch.

"I have always had the same role from my arrival until today – it has not changed. I have always taken responsibility in this team and everyone knows their role."

The 25-year-old also dreams of winning the Ballon d'Or one day, but that is an achievement he is willing to wait for.

"I dream of becoming the best. I think I can do it, but calmly and quietly – I am not in a hurry. All the players dream of (winning it) – I hope to win it one day," he added.

The forward has made 184 appearances for the Spanish giants so far, scoring 104 goals.

Can you imagine this great player playing with the tractors of the EPL like many have been fantasizing lately? He never said he wanted to leave Barcelona in the first place. We scout from the EPL not the other way round. They must just be content with the scraps we give them. There is no team that can fit Neymar like a glove in England anyway.

You can only improve by playing and training with people who push you to be the best. The best players always push themselves beyond their limits
