Barcelona vice-president confirms Neymar interest

Published 4 Comments

Barcelona are ready to do business with Santos for Brazilian striker sensation Neymar, according to Camp Nou vice-president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

The 21-year-old is widely regarded as one of the most exciting prospects in world football, and has been heavily linked with a move to a number of Europe's biggest clubs.

Real Madrid will reportedly rival Barcelona for the South American star's signature, while reigning Premier League champions Manchester City are also believed to be monitoring the player's situation.

Neymar is under contract with Santos until the summer of 2014, and has previously spoken of his desire to remain in Brazil until after the World Cup, where he will be hoping to represent his country at the home tournament.

With 17 goals in 28 appearances for the Samba stars, as well as over a century of strikes for Santos, what's certain is that the flamboyant forward has a bright future in the game.

"He's a player wanted by the technical team," explained Bartomeu. "When he says he wants to leave Santos, the club will be there to try and sign him.

"He is wanted by half of the world."
