Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar would like to play with Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, with the Belgian looking likely to leave London this summer.
Both players have consistently had links with Real Madrid, and the Premier League ace is expected to arrive at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu after the current campaign’s conclusion.
“Hazard,” the Brazilian responded to Fox Sports when asked if there was a player that he’d like to play alongside.
“He’s a player that I think is different and I he has a similar style to me.”
Neymar has come in for a lot of criticism in Paris, particularly after being pictured at the Rio Carnival while recovering from an injury in Brazil.
“It was an exaggeration,” he said of the reports. “I could walk and I was training for two months.
“What hurts most is to see senior players criticising me, because they played and did worse thing than I do.”
Already one of the world’s best players, Neymar caused a stir when he left Barcelona in order to join PSG, but he’s insistent that he made the move to find a new challenge.
“It was about looking for something new, to find new difficulties,” he explained.
“Barcelona are a club that I’m in love with, even today.
“I still talk to my former teammates, but I felt at that time that I was looking for something more difficult.”
