PSG and Brazil forward Neymar has opened the door to joining the Premier League at some point in his career.

Neymar became the most expensive player in history after joining PSG from Barcelona last year in a deal worth almost £200million.

But he has endured a turbulent spell in the French capital and has been persistently linked with a departure from the Parc des Princes.

And Neymar has reiterated his admiration for the Premier League and says every great player should have a spell in England.

We dont know what will happen tomorrow but I believe that every great player, at least one day, has to play in the Premier League.

If youre playing there, I hope you can keep enjoying the Premier League, because you deserve only the best.
