Brazilian football prodigy Neymar has reportedly signed a deal to move to Barcelona from Santos in 2014, which will see him join the brightest star in the world football, his Argentinean nemesis Lionel Messi.
Spanish media claim the Catalan giants will pay 58 million Euros to bring the Brazilian to Europe.
Spanish radio station Cadena SER says the Catalans have sealed a deal, which would see the talented young Brazilian striker join the Spanish club after the 2014 World Cup.
Barcelona has already shelled out 14.5 million Euros to the 20-year-old's Brazilian club Santos.
The decision to strike the deal was allegedly taken by the player and his father – against the will of his agent Wagner Ribeiro.
Neymar is widely considered the rising star of Brazilian football, with several European clubs, including Barcelona's rivals Real Madrid, taking part in the hunt for the striker.
