Barcelona star Neymar believes this season has been the best of his career and hopes it will help him win the Ballon d’Or ‘one day’.
The 25-year-old’s hat-trick against Las Palmas on Monday took the Brazil international up to 19 goals for the campaign, alongside registering 20 assists.
"This is a great season for me," Neymar told France Football.
"I even think I have had my best season since I arrived here. I do not know if I have reached a new level, it is hard to have that judgement when you are on the pitch.
"I have always had the same role from my arrival until today – it has not changed. I have always taken responsibility in this team and everyone knows their role.
"All I want to do is play with the best players in the world – and the best of all is Leo Messi.
"I dream of becoming the best. I think I can do it, but calmly and quietly – I am not in a hurry. All the players dream of [the Ballon d'Or] – I hope to win it one day."
