Earlier today, we’ve covered a story from Globo Esporte which explained Ajax’s intention of holding David Neres for one more year.
The website also reported Everton’s interested in signing the player. That’s the second reliable Brazilian source to do so, since UOL have also been writing about it for months now.
And it turns out that confirming previous reports, David Neres does have the wish of playing in the Premier League. He’s talked about it with journalists in Brazil this weekend.
Currently representing the national team at Copa America, the player had a chat with reporters and made some comments on his future.
“When I’m at the national team, I try to stay focused, I’ll leave it aside with my agents,” said David Neres (via Veja).
“Of course the Premier League interests me, it’s the best league in the world, I always had the dream to play there, but I leave the future in God’s hands.”
Since Richarlison has recently spoken to the English media saying Neres would find open doors at Everton, the player was also quizzed about it, but claimed that they haven’t talked about a transfer: “No, he hasn’t said anything.”
Finally, Neres also confirmed he’s rejected an approach from China: “Had I accepted, I would not be here (laughs). They made a good offer, it was tempting, because I did not play everything in the first half of the season. I wondered what was best for me. In the end, I stayed and beat Real Madrid and Juventus, now I’m playing for the national team. I think I made the right choice.”
