Brazilian sensation Neymar has dropped his biggest hint yet that a move to Spanish giants Barcelona could be on the cards.

The highly-rated 21-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea in the past, but it seems like Tito Vilanova's side have the upper hand in the race for the player's signature. 

Neymar would be a valuable addition to Barcelona's side with Alexis Sanchez failing to hold down a regular starting spot and David Villa constantly linked with a move away from the Nou Camp.

"Who isn’t a fan of Barcelona? I’m happy, I’m thankful for the affection. I feel I’m the happiest guy in the world, regardless of this or that team wanting to sign me," Neymar told Radio Globo.

Neymar did move to reassure fans of current side Santos that he is content at the club, but hinted that a move to Europe could be on the cards in the not too distant future. 

"I’m happy at the club I love. As I have always said, it’s up to me and my family [to decide my future]. When the moment is right, I’ll tell everybody. But please stay calm," added the sought-after forward

Neymar, who is expected to play a key role in Luiz Felipe Scolari's squad for the 2014 World Cup, concluded by listing three clubs that he would be interested in joining, suggesting that maybe the race isn't over for Chelsea if they wish to pursue the player's signature in the summer. 

He concluded: "I dream of playing for a big club like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea."
