Inter Milan and AC Milan have both been linked with a move for the Brazilian ace.
“I’m a player who loves to think on the pitch,” declared the Brazilian player to the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I understood that in every player there’s the time to evaluate and do the best things. My best qualities are probably dribbling with the ball and my hard shot.
“The comparison with Pirlo is very good, it definitely pleases me. He’s a complete player, probably the best midfielder in the world.
“I especially watch constantly the matches of Inter and Milan, also because there are many Brazilians. It would be something to be proud of and a pleasure to play in Italy one day.
“However, I must continue to work with tranquillity and my present dreams are the next Libertadores and the South Africa World Cup, where I hope to be there.”
