The skilful Brazilian says that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are two of the best footballers in the world, but personally believes that his friend and Barcelona teammate is the better player.

"Messi's the greatest footballer I've ever watched play," he told reporters.

"Along with Ronaldo, he is the best in the world, but Leo is my friend and - for me - he is the better of the two."

The 23-year-old was asked about what the Catalan club are striving for this season, and said that his team want to win everything they possibly can.

“Hopefully we can win La Liga and the Champions League," he added.

"We are trying to win it all.”
