Brazil superstar Neymar has hinted at a future switch to the English Premier League.

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Paris Saint-Germain having reportedly grown increasingly unhappy at the club.

Neymar moved to the current French Ligue 1 champions from Barcelona last year, and despite enjoying continued success in Paris, the wing-wizard has seemingly reached his ceiling at the club.

Asked by Manchester City fullback Benjamin Mendy if he'd like to play in the English Premier League one day, the former Santos star dropped a massive hint about his aspirations.

"It's a big competition. One of the greatest in the world. We don’t know how tomorrow will be, but I believe that every great player, at least one day, has to play in the Premier League," Neymar said via his Youtube channel.

Neymar has in the past been linked with a move to Manchester City. The Citizens, though, already boast a catalogue of wide men including Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and Algeria international Riyad Mahrez.
