RIO DE JANEIRO (AFP) – Brazilian superstar Neymar can imagine ending his career in the United States, not in Brazil.
“I don’t know if I will play in Brazil again,” he said on the podcast “Fenômenos” with former Brazilian star Ronaldo. “I really want to play in the United States, at least for a season.” “The tournament there is short, so he will take three months off,” Neymar joked. “I will play there for many more years.”
When asked how long he intends to play, the 30-year-old said: “I joke with my friends that 32 is enough.” But honestly, he doesn’t know. “I will play until I am mentally tired.” In addition, Neymar has a contract with Paris Saint-Germain until 2025. Then he will turn 34 years old. “Okay, I’ll play until then.”
The World Cup finals in Qatar this year are also approaching, with Neymar selecting France, Germany, Argentina and Spain as candidates alongside Brazil. He is saddened by the long distance between Brazilian fans and their national team. “It is very sad that I am playing in a generation where the national team is not important anymore.”
