Barcelona’s attempt in beating Real Madrid for the signature of Brazilian wonder kid, Neymar, could really be heading for success after the youngster revealed that he has been receiving lots of positive input about the Blaurgrana from former Barca star, Ronaldinho.
According to the 19-years-old, Dinho have been giving lots of praises for the Catalan side, something which increased Neymar’s interest especially since the youngster always looked up to the ex-Ac Milan player.
I have always kept in mind the advice of Ronaldinho and he spoke wonders of Barcelona and the city, which he told me is marvellous. He’s always been something of a benchmark for me,” Neymar said.
Furthermore the young Brazilian also stated his personal admiration towards the Catalan outfit, admitting the strength and quality of players the club’s current possessed. However, Neymar still can’t guarantee anything as just yet especially since he does have a contract until 2014 with Santos, but the youngster did said that anything can still happen despite of his long agreement.
[They] are an excellent team, as everyone knows, and are full of stars,” Neymar said. anything can happen(about his future)
Neymar has constantly been linked with a move towards either Barcelona and Real Madrid for quite sometime, but apparently his current club, Santos, managed to convince the player in staying with the Brazilian team for a while. Having already signed a deal until 2014, it would obviously take some huge cash for any European giants who wants to take the talent away from his hometown, especially since the Brazil club doesn’t really have any financial issues and can afford to give good payment for the striker.
