Neymar spoke from the heart in a recent interview with SporTV, while away on international duty with Brazil - about issues he doesn't usually discuss.
"I would like to meet a woman, get married and have kids. It's something that I always talk about with my friends, I have this dream of being married in a church, going out to party with my friends and have my children by my side every day.
"I have a child that lives far away and I know how difficult it is. The dream of wanting to be a father with a family continues."
Moreover, asked about his present status, he said: "I had a relationship recently, but now I am totally focused on my work."
"It's hard to be so far from Davi"
Of his son, Davi Lucca, Barcelona's No 11 continued: "It's difficult to be so far from my son, it makes me very nostalgic. I speak with him almost every day on the mobile of his mother. Each month and a half, or two, he comes here."
Very cautious about his use of social networks, Neymar admits he always asks for advice.
"These days we have to think about what we write because everything can be used against you. For this I take care and when I have doubts, I ask for the advice of my father or people I work with, before I publish, so I don't end up doing bad things."
He will meet Alexis again
This sunday, Neymar takes on Chile with Brazil in a friendly, after scoring against France on Thursday.
This match takes place at the Emrirates Stadium, home of Arsenal and former Barcelona player Alexis - who also plays for Chile.
