Santos star Neymar has revealed that he can imagine playing for Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich in the future.

The 21-year-old striker has been linked with moves to a number of top European clubs, including the likes of Barcelona and Manchester City,  for when his contract expires next year.

Now Neymar is the latest famous football figure to associate himself with the Bavarians, who became the centre of attention in January after they confirmed that former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola would be taking over in the summer/

He told German news outlet SID: "All leagues are interesting in the end, including the Bundesliga.

"Bayern are a big club with extraordinary players. Playing for Bayern is something I could imagine doing. There is nothing that speaks against this.

"[Bastian] Schweinsteiger is one of the best players I have ever seen. It is the basics that make him strong: his positioning, his passing and his presence on the field."

The Brazilian talent also revealed that he is still trying to work on the weaker aspects of his game, as well as accepting that there is a lot of pressure on the Seleção leading up to the World Cup in the summer of 2014.

He added: "As host country we are under pressure, of course," he said. "But maybe our fans will help lead us to success at the World Cup in our own country.

"[To win it] we have to improve our link-up play, but I believe it will soon be better. Personally, I have to improve my heading, shooting and possession-play."
