Manchester City target Neymar insists he is yet to decide whether to join Barcelona or Real Madrid.

The Brazil international has been closely tracked by a host of Europe’s top clubs for a series of eye-catching displays for Santos.

The 21-year-old was widely reported to have agreed to join Barcelona in the summer, which would see him link up with fellow South American Lionel Messi.

But Neymar is unsure whether a move to Europe will materialise in the near future and says he does not know which La Liga side he would prefer to join.

“I have no preference for Barcelona or Real Madrid. They are both great clubs that are respected by everyone. They each have their own history and fantastic players,” said Neymar.

“In the past few years, Barcelona have impressed the entire world with the way they play. They are one of the best teams in the world.

“Playing in Europe continues to be a dream, but I do not know whether it will happen soon. Only I decide when I’m ready for it.

“I will make the move when I make the decision myself. It’s not about anybody else, but solely my call. If I feel I have to go now, I’ll leave now. But if I want to stay for five more years, I’ll leave in five years.”
