Manchester United transfer target Neymar has revealed he'd love to play alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic, refusing to rule out a move to Paris St Germain.

The Santos star is one of the most highly coveted players in the world, and recently revealed there are "maybe five clubs" on the planet he would consider joining. Chelsea, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid are thought to be among them, with PSG a possible fifth.

The 20-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to the Nou Camp, and Barcelona reportedly already have a deal in place to sign the Brazilian.

But Neymar has insisted PSG are a club he would consider. The French side signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva in the summer, and have reached an agreement to bring Neymar's Brazilian compatriot Lucas Moura to Ligue 1 in January.

"Paris is a beautiful city," Neymar told Telefoot. And when asked if PSG remained an option, the Santos forward said: "Maybe. It would be a great honour, but I am very happy at Santos."

Neymar has said he intends to stay with Santos until after the 2014 World Cup, but revealed he'd love to have the opportunity to play alongside Ibrahimovic.

"Ibrahimovic, is one of the best players in the world today and I dream to play with major players," said Neymar.

The Swedish striker signed for PSG, along with former-AC Milan teammate Thiago Silva, and has started the season in terrific form.

The 31-year-old leads the Ligue 1 scoring charts, and scored two more goals over the weekend to take his tally to nine goals in eight games.

Manchester United have held a long-term interest in Neymar, but reports of a £38m deadline day bid by the Old Trafford side were reportedly wide of the mark.

Sir Alex Ferguson missed out on Lucas Moura to Carlo Ancelotti's PSG, and the French side could pip Manchester United to the signing of Neymar as well.
