Neymar: This has been my 'best season' since arriving at Barcelona

Barcelona forward Neymar has told France Football that he is currently enjoying his best campaign yet at the Catalan club.

Neymar, 25, hit a hat trick on Sunday as Barca beat Las Palmas 4-1 to keep them in the hunt for the La Liga title.

The Brazil international has now scored 19 goals in all competitions for Barca this term, as well as registering a further 20 assists, and he believes he is in his best form since arriving from Santos in in 2013.

"This is a great season for me," Neymar said. "I even think I have had my best season since I arrived here. I do not know if I have reached a new level, it is hard to have that judgement when you are on the pitch.

"I have always had the same role from my arrival until today -- it has not changed. I have always taken responsibility in this team and everyone knows their role."

Neymar said he is enjoying playing alongside some of the game's top talents at Barca, including Lionel Messi, and one day hopes to become the world's greatest and win the Ballon d'Or.

"All I want to do is play with the best players in the world -- and the best of all is Leo Messi," Neymar added.

"I dream of becoming the best. I think I can do it, but calmly and quietly -- I am not in a hurry. All the players dream of [the Ballon d'Or] -- I hope to win it one day."
