Barcelona striker Neymar Jr might be moving to Manchester United after the player hinted that he is amazed by the Premier League.

It is understandable why Neymar feels so strongly about the Premier League. Compared to the La Liga and other Spanish leagues, the Premier League has a more contentious environment where clubs are embroiled in incessant games: the scene is hectic.

Asked about playing under Jose Mourinho, Neymar replied, “The Premier League is a championship that amazes me. I like the playing style and the teams. And who knows, someday, I would like to play at it, yes.”

“I admire Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool – these are the teams that are always there fighting,” he said.

The interview came in the background of Leicester City cruising into the Champions League. “Leicester are very good. They had a great season last year, they were Premier League champions and therefore we need to respect them if we draw them in the Champions League,” Neymar said.
