Neymar: I would like to play with both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo

Santos striker Neymar, who has been linked with the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid, has admitted he would like to play with both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Neymar is a transfer target for most of Europe's elite clubs, with Chelsea, Juventus, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain also keen on signing the £40million-rated forward, in addition to the two Spanish giants.

The 20-year-old Brazil international, who is under contract with Santos until 2014, this week insisted he is not considering moving to Europe in the immediate future following reports in South America claiming a move to Barca could be on the cards (see Related Articles).

But Neymar has admitted he would like to play with Barcelona star Messi and Real Madrid ace Ronaldo.

"I would like to play with both Messi and Ronaldo," he told El Mundo.

"Messi's career is an example to follow for me. There are no words to describe his game. I just want him to keep on doing what he does with the ball."

Neymar impressed yet again for Santos at the weekend, scoring a hat-trick in their 4-0 win at Cruzeiro.
