Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has strongly been linked with a return to LaLiga in recent months but his latest comments have suggested may end up in England.
Neymar, 26, who finished 12th in the 2018 Ballon d'Or rankings joined PSG for a world-record €222m from FC Barcelona in August 2017.
While he cited his move away from the LaLiga giants as a way to finally claim the Golden Ball, his drop from third to 12th has increased speculation that he may be after a move to see his aspirations improve.
And after speaking on his official YouTube channel, the Brazilain has now hinted that a return to Spain may not be his next move.
As he fielded questions from various footballers including his former Barcelona teammate Luis Suarez and Brazil international colleague Gabriel Jesus - his Manchester City teammate Benjamin Mendy enquired about a potential move to the English top-flight.
"Answer me sincerely," Mendy asked. "Do you think one day you'll play in the Premier League?"
"It's a big competition," Neymar responded. "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.
"If you're playing there, then I hope you can keep enjoying the Premier League because you deserve only the best."
