Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has revealed he would like to play alongside Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.
According to the Brazilian, he shares a similar playing style with Hazard and believes his partnership with Hazard will cause havoc.
Both players have been linked with huge transfers to Real Madrid this season, with Real Madrid reportedly preparing to embark on a summer squad overhaul following a disappointing campaign.
“I would like to play with Hazard. He has a style similar to mine,” Neymar told Fox Sports, as quoted by Goal.
“I think I could give it a try. We would cause havoc together!”
So will Neymar’s dream of playing alongside Hazard happen at Chelsea or Real Madrid? We will all know this summer.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have defended Hazard after the Belgian was controversially snubbed for the PFA Team of the Year, despite having a wonderful season with Chelsea.
No player in the Premier League this season was involved in more goals (29) than Hazard and it’s definitely a shame the Belgian isn’t on the Team of the Year. Hazard has scored 16 league goals and provided 13 assists this season.
Chelsea wrote on the club’s official website: “Our no.10 is enjoying an outstanding season full of eye-catching moments and his non-selection is being widely described as a surprise omission. Certainly his headline statistics from the current season cannot have counted against him when the votes were cast.
“Hazard is enjoying his best Premier League campaign to date when it comes to goals and assists combined, and indeed he tops the table for that total across the all the players at all 20 clubs.
“One more goal in the remaining three matches and he will have surpassed his 16 scored in the league in 2016/17. His 13 assists is already two greater than his best previous Premier League tally, which came in his first season here in 2012/13.
“The PFA Teams of the Year are determined by the votes of the professional footballers in each respective division.
“This year’s Premier League selection very much reflects the two teams contesting for the title with all but one of the 11 named coming from those two sides, although Mohamed Salah is not one of them. Manchester United’s Paul Pogba in midfield is the odd one out in coming from a different club.”
