Santos striker Neymar, widely regarded as one of the world’s best young talents, told French television that a move to big spending Paris Saint-Germain would be a dream come true.

"To play at PSG, maybe, it would be a great honor," the 20-year-old Brazil striker said on the TF1 program Telefoot. "The city of Paris is wonderful ... but I'm at Santos, we'll see.” He added: "It would be a dream to play with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, it's a dream to play with great players and he's one of them." During the interview Neymar asserted that his Brazil teammate Lucas Moura, who joins PSG in January, had “made the right choice.”
