Neymar would like to play in the Premier League one day, according to his Brazil team-mate, Gabriel Jesus.
The 25-year-old is now the world’s most expensive player, after sealing a €222million switch from Barcelona this summer.
Manchester City striker, Jesus is close friends with Neymar and says his compatriot could end up playing in England soon.
“Well, to be honest I’m not sure that I’m going to be able to convince him [to join City],” Jesus told the Daily Mail.
“I think that many players, just like me, feel a strong desire to play in the Premier League.
“I think he must, too. He’s already said that he’d like to play here one day.
“The most important thing is that he makes the right decisions over what’s best for him. I always cheer for him.
“I’m not sure if one day I could persuade him to come to England. But if he decides to come, I’ll do my best to make sure it’s to City!”
