The 19-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to one of Europe's big clubs, but is currently preparing for Wednesday's second leg of the Copa Libertadores final against Peñarol.

"At the moment my thoughts are only on winning the Copa Libertadores," Neymar told AS.

"My first thought is to stay here (with Santos) as well because happiness is everything, for the club, for my family, for the fans - the most important thing is to be happy."

However, the striker wants to play in the Champions League one day.

"Of course it is (a dream), just like it is for all the players in the world," he said.

"To play in that competition is a privilege and I hope to do so one day.

"I want to play in World Cups and play in the best leagues."

But the youngster denies a move is imminent.

"I have a contract with Santos and I'm very happy here," he said.

"I believe my future belongs to God. (A move to Europe) could be tomorrow or in two or five years' time - I don't know.

"I would have to think about it with my father, with my mother - with everyone."
