Neymar was heavily linked with Manchester United in the past and the forward has suggested that a move to England is possible.
The Barcelona star has admitted he would like to one day work with the Premier League-bound coach and has also expressed an interest in playing in the United States. Barcelona star Neymar has admitted he would “love” to play for Pep Guardiola.
The Brazil international was reportedly a firm target for Louis van Gaal at Manchester United in 2015, with the forward’s agent claiming that an offer said to be worth close to £140million had been tabled.
Rumours have emerged in recent weeks that Jose Mourinho has made contact personally with Neymar in order to test the water before launching a new bid at the end of the season.
Although he signed a new contract at Camp Nou in October that runs until 2021, the former Santos forward has revealed that a move to England is tempting.
“It’s a championship that surprises me,” he said at a PokerStars event. “I like the playing style and the teams.
“I admire Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool – these are the teams that are always fighting for the title.
When asked if there was one manager he would like to work with, Neymar told Red Bull’s website: “Yes, there is one: Guardiola is a guy who I really admire and who I would love to work with.
“It is tough to say if I want to play in other countries. Nobody knows tomorrow, but I am very happy where I am right now at Barcelona.
“I have the will to go back to Brazil some day and I also would like to play in [the] USA – those two countries are two where I want to play later on in my career.
