The mercurial Brazilian has been linked with Barcelona for several months, but Bayern Munich were also credited with an interest in the player.
And Neymar, who was in London for Brazil's friendly defeat to England in February, voiced his interest in playing for the Bundesliga side, as Graeme Yorke of the Daily Mail reported.
Rumours that Neymar would link up with former Barca coach Pep Guardiola at the Allianz Arena next season were given credence when former Santos vice president Vicente Cascione claimed the player was on the way to Bayern, as reported by Stefan Coerts of Goal.com.
