Barcelona reportedly have a deal in place that will see Brazilian sensation Neymar arrive at the Nou Camp from Santos next summer.
Neymar is regarded as one of the finest young talents to have emerged from Brazilian football in a number of years, and has already been lauded by Pele as the best player in the world.
The 20-year-old is surely destined for greatness and, it would seem, will be provided the opportunity to prove himself in European football with a move to Barcelona.
Neymar has instead that he will remain loyal to Santos until his contract expires in 2014 but, according to Spanish publication Sport, the young forward is likely to join Barcelona next year.
Barcelona president Sandro Rossell is reported to have already negotiated a deal with Santos which means the Brazilian club would be liable to to pay a fine of €40 million were Neymar sold to another club.
Free-spending Paris Saint-Germain reportedly enquired about the availability of Neymar during the summer, but Barca are confident of capturing the player next year.
