‘Rooney would improve Barca’

Neymar has admitted that it would be 'a dream' to play alongside Wayne Rooney in a Barcelona shirt.

The Manchester United striker has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, with Chelsea and Arsenal rumoured to be the England international's most likely destination.

However, the Brazilian goalscorer has claimed that he would like the chance to play with the former Everton man.

“It would be a dream to play with him,” Neymar told reporters. “Of course he would improve Barcelona – he would improve any club in Europe.

“I've met Wayne a few times and he seems like a nice guy,

“But more importantly, he is one of the most admired players anywhere in the world.

“He is very talented and technically great.”
