Neymar's only just left the club and Santos have already lined up his replacement.

19-year-old Neilton, dubbed the 'new Neymar', has sparkled for the club since his promotion to the first-team.

The Santos starlet wears Neymar's number 11 shirt, and already has three goals in six games for the club this season.

And at the weekend the hype really went into overdrive after he scored a stunning 'Neymar-style' strike.

Showing the same kind of dribbling ability as the Brazil forward, Neilton whipped the ball past a Portuguesa defender before drilling a low shot into the far corner. 

Earlier this year Chelsea and Manchester United were linked with the teenager, and reportedly had scouts on the case in Brazil.

This goal was one of two he scored against Portuguesa in a 4-1 win for Santos.
