Neymar has been linked with Manchester United, another of Schweinsteiger's former clubs.
But he told Goal: "That's difficult, but if you ask me which kind of player I would like to see in the Bayern Munich jersey then I would probably say I would like to see Neymar in a Bayern Munich jersey.
"But I don't know if he wants to.
"(The connection) actually came from (former Bayern Munich defender) Dante. He was playing with him in the Selecao, and he wanted to have a shirt of mine so I gave Dante a shirt of mine for Neymar.
"Every time when we played against each other there was a lot of respect.
"I also remember in 2014 when we won the World Cup in Brazil, and I met him during my vacation — it was a coincidence," Schweinsteiger added.
"Then we spent some hours or some days together, so it was quite fun. He's good guy. He's a typical Brazilian. His heart is good. He's a good person and, for me, one of the best players at the moment."
