Neymar has reiterated his desire to one day play under Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar missed the chance to feature under Guardiola at Barcelona, joining the club a year after the Catalan had left his role as head coach.

Brazil forward Neymar spoke in January 2016 of his admiration for Guardiola, who enjoyed a spell at Bayern Munich between his jobs at Barca and City.

And working with Guardiola is an ambition that Neymar still holds.

"I have always wanted to work with Guardiola," he told  ESPN Brasil.

"It's different, I arrived [at Barca] after he left. I really want to work with him."

Neymar joined PSG from Barca last August in a world-record €222 million move, but has already been strongly linked with a return to La Liga and his former club's great rivals, Real Madrid.
