Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil forward Neymar played with some of the biggest names in soccer during his career, but there’s one player he would particularly like to share jersey with. Unsurprisingly, that player is Cristiano Ronaldo.

Neymar, who recently penned a new deal with PSG until 2025, revealed this in a recent interview with GQ.

“I want to play with Cristiano Ronaldo,” said Neymar. “I have already played with great players, like [Lionel] Messi and [Kylian] Mbappe, but I haven’t played with Cristiano Ronaldo yet.”

Neymar already has a stellar supporting cast in Paris, playing alongside the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria, and Marco Verratti. But despite a stacked team, PSG hasn’t been able to get to a Champions League trophy.

Having Ronaldo on his side would probably make this feat easier for Neymar. The Portuguese superstar has topped the competition five times, winning one with Manchester United and four with Real Madrid.

Cristiano Ronaldo is currently enjoying a lukewarm season with Juventus, and the chatter of him leaving Seria A giants is growing louder by day. While Real seems to be in play as his next destination, heading to France might also be on the cards, according to multiple reports. So don’t be surprised if you see Neymar getting his wish true as soon as this summer.
