Neymar 'dreams' of playing for Paris Saint-Germain, claims his agent

Neymar has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain for a few months but all previous rumours have been fairly unsubstantiated.

That is until now.

The agent of the Barcelona striker, Wagner Ribeiro, has publicly discussed the possibility of the Brazilian sensationally moving to the French club.

Neymar has had a terrific season for Barcelona so far, scoring 27 goals in 38 matches so there is little surprise that there is interest in the 24-year-old.

The former Santos forward has a £154 million release clause and Ribeiro doesn’t believe that huge amount will be a problem for a mega-rich club like PSG.

Ribeiro's quotes

"It's huge: 193m euros. But I don't think that would be an insurmountable problem for PSG,” the agent told L’Equipe.

And he appeared keen to tempt the French club into bidding for Neymar, admitting that it would be a “dream” for any player to pay for them.

"If PSG show an interest in Neymar, we can discuss it," he said.

"He feels good in Barcelona. He's loved over there and he's playing for the best team in the world."

Ribeiro continued: ”It's no small feat to impose yourself at such an enormous club.

"But the prospect of living in a city like Paris and to play for a club like PSG - that's also a dream for every player.

"We'll see in two years, when he will be at the end of his contract. A contract can also be terminated provided that the release clause is paid,” he added.

Impressive record

Neymar has scored 52 goals in 86 La Liga matches since joining the Catalan club in a £48.6 million deal in June 2013.

He has also been tipped to end Lionel Messi’s and Cristiano Ronaldo’s stranglehold on the Ballon d’Or trophy - which stretches back to 2008.

While his goalscoring ratio for Barcelona is pretty impressive, his record on the international stage is even better.

Despite only being 24, Neymar has made an incredible 70 appearances for Brazil and has scored 46 goals.

End of 'MSN?'

If Neymar was to leave the Nou Camp, it would break up the incredible attacking trident known as ‘MSN.’

Neymar, along with Messi and Luis Suarez helped Barcelona to win the treble last season and the trio have already scored over 100 goals between them the campaign.

The club look on course to complete a second consecutive treble. Despite the El Clasico defeat on Saturday, Luis Enrique’s side are six points clear at the top of La Liga and are through to the Copa del Rey final.

They are also in the quarter-final of the Champions League where they face title rivals, Atletico Madrid.

A transfer involving Neymar would, undoubtedly, be the story of the transfer window and it'll be interesting what the striker makes of a possible move to Paris.
