Neymar: "Playing for Barça is a dream but I have no preference"

Brazilian sensation Neymar is in no hurry to leave current club Santos and emigrate to Europe.

The forward is happy with life in Santos, Sao Paulo, where he has his friends and family close by, and he plays for the club he adores. He is not short of money - a Brazilian newspaper recently revealed he earned 22 million euros in 2012.

The 20-year old has admitted that for now he does not want to be the best player in the world, he wants to stay happy.

"I am a Santos boy because my family brought me up here, and I don't see myself at another team. I don't have the aim to be the best player in the world, it's enough for me to just be happy where I am. I want to be relaxed, and enjoy my football, and I'm very happy at Santos," he said.

Neymar knows that Barcelona want to sing him and recognises that playing for 'Los Azulgranas' is a dream of his, but he also revealed he has never expressed a preference to play for the Catalan side.

"I am sure that one day the time to play in Europe will come. Barcelona have players that I've always admired and I think that I could play there. They have great players and playing there is one of my dreams, but I've never had a preference for Barcelona," he added.
