As one-third of the famous 'MSN' front line at Barcelona and a man who is coming off the back of captaining his country to Olympic gold, you'd think Neymar had a pretty full diary right now.

But it looks like the Brazilian forward is about to put even more on his plate after today announcing a rather unexpected side career.

Taking to Twitter less than 24 hours after his Barcelona side had suffered a shock 2-1 defeat to Alaves, Neymar revealed to his millions of followers that he would be beginning his "music career" as of Wednesday.

The 24-year-old took to social media to announce, in his native Portuguese, his unusual side project.

According to Spanish publication AS' English edition, Neymar's message translates as:

"This Wednesday I begin my music career and I’m going to release my first song on Facebook. We will have ‘Neymusico’. Share it."

In times gone by, footballers - from Chris Waddle to Pele - have tried their chances in the music industry with song releases of their own. 

And Neymar has previously posted videos of him singing samba-style songs in the past. 

Still, it is still a bold move from the Barcelona striker and, obviously, he is leaving himself open to ridicule if whatever he does release next week doesn't quite hit the right note.

Considering the millions of fans the Brazilian star has backing him on the field, however, he can almost guarantee that his song will be a success regardless of his vocal talents.

Given how last night's La Liga game went last night, though, Barcelona manager Luis Enrique may prefer Neymar to concentrate on his performances on the field.

The forward was making his first appearance of the season for Barca after his exploits with the national team in Rio, but he wasn't able to stop the Catalan club suffer a surprise defeat at the Camp Nou.

The result means Real Madrid have the early advantage in La Liga and currently sit three points ahead of Neymar, Messi, Suarez and co.
