Bayern Munich centre-back Dante says Santos star Neymar asked about the club during their time together on international duty for Brazil.
Dante said the 21-year-old forward asked about life at Bayern, confirming his interest in plying his trade in the Bundesliga.
“I told Neymar there is nothing better than Bayern Munich,” Dante told Sky Sport.
“I said it would be a great club for him.”
Neymar, who pledged his future to his boyhood club in the short term, is also wanted by Barcelona and Real Madrid, but blew the race for his signature wide open after admitting interest in a move to Bayern.
The sought-after 21-year-old is already one of the hottest names circulating around the European transfer market after his exploits for both club and country.
