Neymar wants to play with ‘special’ Eden Hazard

Neymar has admitted he would like to play with Eden Hazard in future years, with both players strongly linked to Real Madrid.

Belgium international Hazard has long been linked with a move to Madrid with Marca reporting last month an agreement ‘was very close between all parties’ while Cadena Cope claimed the player was house hunting in Madrid.

“I'd like to play with Hazard – he is a special player,” Neymar told Fox Sports in Brazil.

“He plays a little bit like me. I'd like to play with him. I think we would give a lot of trouble to opponents.”

27-year-old Neymar has been strongly linked with a future move to Madrid, having joined Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona in the summer of 2017 in a world record €222m deal.
