Brazil star and Manchester United transfer target Neymar looks increasingly likely to play in La Liga - for either Barcelona or Real Madrid.

The Santos forward has been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Chelsea and Manchester United both reportedly interested.

But the English pair always had strong competition for the signature of one of the hottest prospects in world football, and it seems likely that the 20-year-old will end up in La Liga with one of the El Clasico rivals.

Spanish newspaper AS reports a source close to Neymar, Jo Amancio, the player's 'adopted' brother, who says that Barcelona and Real Madrid are Neymar's two most likely destinations.

Quoted on, he said: "I don't know if he'll play for Barcelona or Real Madrid, but I think he'll come to Europe. They're two very good teams, the best in the world."

Neymar has committed to Santos until after the 2014 World Cup, but speculation has mounted that the Brazil star could be tempted to Europe before.

International compatriot Dani Alves recently revealed he'd love to see Neymar alongside Lionel Messi at Barcelona, while Barcelona president Sandro Rossell has refused to rule out a move for the starlet.

Manchester United missed out on Neymar's Brazil teammate Lucas Moura this summer - the teenager instead opting for French side Paris St Germain.

And reports seem to suggest United could miss out on Neymar as well.
