Neymar has told reporters he and Lionel Messi will work in harmony, rather than attempting to best each other with on-pitch performances, according to the Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old, who arrived at the Nou Camp for a fee of €57 million this summer from Santos, insisted his job was to help the four-time Ballon d'Or winner, not compete with him. 

Neymar told reporters: "My relationship with Messi is great. I'm sure that there'll be no problems. He is the leader, the best player in the world, and I am here to help him.

"I try to speak with everyone, but the players I'm talking with the most are Dani Alves, Adriano, Messi, Pinto and Xavi."

The Brazil starlet's home debut for Barca will come when he lines up against his former club in the Gamper Trophy, and Neymar is not worried about facing familiar personnel.

"I always play with the same excitement, as if every game was the Champions League final. I am desperate to play in the Nou Camp," Neymar said

The Confederations Cup star has been backed to succeed at the Nou Camp by many former-greats and current senior players.

Combined, Messi and Neymar make for a prospect of mouth-watering magnitude, and if the two can adapt their game to accomodate each other, Barcelona could well boast one of the most gifted front-lines in recent history.
