Rio de Janeiro: Brazil`s football sensation Neymar has responded to Sweden international Zlatan Ibrahimovic`s praise by saying it would be "a dream" to play alongside the striker at French club Paris Saint-Germain.

Ibrahimovic last week labelled Neymar "a fantastic talent", adding he would like to see the 20-year-old leave Santos for a top European outfit.

Neymar reaffirmed his commitment to the Brazilian club Sunday but showed his appreciation for Ibrahimovic`s comments.

"It`s my objective to be surrounded by great players and he is one of those," Neymar said.

"It would be a dream to play with Ibrahimovic."

Neymar is currently contracted to Santos, the team he joined as an 11-year-old, until 2014 and he has repeatedly denied reports of an imminent move to Europe.
