Brazil legend Cafu believes Neymar will become the best player in the world within two years, reports 

Neymar, who joined Messi at Barcelona in the summer, has impressed so far in Spain and now Cafu expects him to overtake his teammate's status as the world's best. 

The 21-year-old is the biggest star in Brazil and the national team has extremely high hopes of him ahead of the World Cup next summer. 

The forward had scored three goals in his opening 11 appearances for the Catalan outfit, but according to Cafu, Neymar will become the main-man soon. 

And, speaking to Sportv, the three time World Cup finalist said: "Give him two years at Barcelona. Then Neymar will surpass Messi and Ronaldo."

Messi and Ronaldo have been the number one and two stars in the world for the last two years, but with the emergence of Neymar on the European scene, this could be set to change if Cafu is to be believed.
