Neymar is getting ready to return to Barcelona for the second half of 2015. The first six months of this year have been sensational for the Brazilian superstar, who excelled on his role beside his MSN partners, and his Champions League Final performance against Juventus were the final touch on a perfect start of the year.

If he maintains the same level as the Blaugrana hope to win three more titles in 2015, there is a very good chance that Neymar joins usual contestants Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the Ballon d'Or final shortlist, which would be a tremendous achievement for a 23-year-old kid.

Speaking to Brazilian TV on Sunday, Neymar commented on his amazing 2015 so far, and was very humble in dreaming of that moment where he stands beside the two best players in the world.

Here's some of his quotes:

"Just to be one of the three finalists would be a great achievement, it would be a dream that I intend to go for, to be beside Messi and Cristiano would be a grand honour."

"I have great admiration for him, and now even more because we know each other and play together."

"They said we would fight, that he wouldn't pass me the ball. He welcomed me in an incredible way, really well, and today it's he who has given me the most assists in my career. For me, Leo is a mirror, a friend and an idol."
