Santos star Neymar has dropped a fresh hint that he would be open to a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid after revealing his admiration for both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Neymar, who has also been linked with Chelsea, last month snubbed a move to Europe and signed an improved three-year deal with Santos, although it is thought that he will eventually leave South America at some point before his contract expires after the 2014 World Cup.
A number of current and former players have in recent weeks called for the 20-year-old to leave Santos and join one of Europe's elite clubs, despite the Brazil international recently insisting he does not need to move in order to realise his full potential.
Barca are widely seen as favourites to sign the £40million-rated forward, with recent reports in Spain and South America claiming that an agreement behind the scenes is already in place.
And despite his recent comments, Neymar, who has previously hinted at a move to either England or Spain, has once again put Barca and Madrid on alert after admitting that he is keen to learn from either Messi or Ronaldo.
Speaking to Globoesporte, he said: "I have both Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as my idols.
"If I can take a little of each player's game and make it my own, I would be very happy."
Some believe Neymar is already as good as the two biggest stars in La Liga, and some have compared his free-kicks to those of Ronaldo.
However, the youngster insists the similarity in style is just a coincidence.
"There are players that try to imitate others, but at free-kick time it is a personal thing," he added.
"Every person has their own technique and routine when they stand over the ball and I have mine, I am not trying to copy anyone."
