Which Premier League players does Neymar keep an eye on and when is he moving to England?

The Barcelona forward told Dream Team about the Premier League players he's been keeping an eye on

Can you imagine Neymar sitting down in front of the telly, sticking on Monday Night Football for a bit of Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher back and forth?

No, neither can we. Nevertheless, footballers aren’t robots. They watch football from time to time, just like you and I.

But the big question is, who does he like to watch?


What are you waiting for Pep? Give him a call

Does he watch Stoke, analysing Charlie Adam’s left foot? Does he marvel at Gareth McAuley’s ability to get up from back the for West Brom.

Rather predictably, no.

Speaking to Dream Team at Neymar Jr’s Fives Neymar said: “I do watch the Premier League a little bit. I like to follow Philippe Coutinho and Gabriel Jesus.”

Under Tite Neymar, Coutinho and Jesus have formed arguably the most potent attack in international football, with the latter scoring five times in seven appearances.

But, before fans of Liverpool and Man City get too carried away, it doesn’t look like Neymar will be moving to the Premier League any time soon.

The 25-year-old said: “To be honest I’ve never thought about living in England.

How well does Neymar know Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez?

“Of course I ask Luis Suarez about how England was, whether he was good and happy, but I’ve never asked about going there.”

He says that now, but is there any way of rejecting Tony Pulis when he comes calling?
