Barcelona are renowned for nurturing homegrown talent, with the Catalan club's La Masia academy heralded as the best in the business at bringing through exciting young players with a clear route from the development side to the first-team.

However, over the years the Spanish giants have also splashed considerable cash on marquee signings to challenge the headline additions annually made by their domestic rivals Real Madrid.

This summer it was Brazilian sensation Neymar who put pen to paper on a lucrative five-year contract at Camp Nou, joining from Santos in a reported €57million deal.

Big things are expected of the 21-year-old forward in 2013/14, and his burgeoning partnership with Lionel Messi will make for interesting viewing for fans all over the world, in the build-up to next summer's World Cup.
