Manchester City and Chelsea set to snubbed by Brazilian starlet Neymar – as Santos coach Muricy Ramalho has told Neymar to ignore all English interest, and move to FC Barcelona, according to talkSPORT.
Neymar is one of the most sought after youngsters in world football – and has been linked with all of Europe's top clubs since his rise to prominance with the Santos and the Brazilian national side. Neymar has insisted he wants to stay in Brazil till the 2014 World Cup – and when he does eventually decided to venture in to European football – his current coach eyes one destination for him.
Ramalho told La Xarxa radio: “It would be amazing to see a Barcelona side with Neymar and Messi”
“Barcelona is a very similar side to ours. The players like to pass the ball around. I think Neymar would be best suited to Barcelona.”
“Neymar is destined for Europe after the World Cup. He must choose the club he goes to wisely.”
“The best option for me is Barça. Messi is close to becoming the greatest of all time, but he is yet to win the World Cup. Only then will he be at the level of Pele and Maradona.”
A combination of Neymar and Messi is frightening – and will no doubt enhance and further cement the current Barcelona side as the best footballing team on the planet.
