Neymar 'dreams' of Chelsea move

BY foxsports • May 19, 2011

Santos forward Neymar has hinted he would welcome a fresh approach from Chelsea this summer after he turned down a move to London last year.

Neymar decided to spend another season in Brazil when Chelsea made a move for him last summer, but the 19-year-old now appears ready to leave his homeland.

Chelsea are likely to face competition for his signature should they re-enter the race, but Neymar would happily move to Stamford Bridge.

"I was very happy about Chelsea's interest because it is a club every player would like to play for, but at that moment the right decision was to stay at Santos," Neymar told the Daily Telegraph.

"To play in Europe is my dream. I was very proud of Chelsea's interest and I hope to keep playing well so that this proposal can happen again.

"I know about these teams; Chelsea, Manchester - to play for them are the dreams of all players. I know about players in England - [Didier] Drogba, [Frank] Lampard, [Steven] Gerrard - these are very good players.

"I have spoken to Ramires and David Luiz and they say England is a very good country and London is a beautiful place to live."
