Neymar has put the
finishing touches to his
switch to Barcelona by
signing a five-year
contract at the Nou Camp
this evening, the Spanish
club have confirmed.

The 21-year-old Brazil
striker flew to
this morning to finalise his
departure from Santos,
nine days after a
preliminary agreement
between the clubs was
made public and just hours
after he played in a 2-2
friendly draw with England
at the Maracana Stadium.

In a journey charted in
detail by the Catalan giants’
official website, Neymar
was greeted at Barcelona
airport – having arrived
slightly behind schedule –
before being taken to the
club’s offices to pose for
photographs in the
Blaugrana shirt and to
undergo a medical.
The forward passed
“exhaustive tests” before
committing his future to the
club until June 2018 in the
presence of president
Sandro Rosell, vice-
president Josep Maria
Bartomeu and sporting
director Andoni Zubizarreta.
The transfer fee remained
Neymar was later paraded
on the Nou Camp pitch in
front of thousands of Barca
fans and hundreds
journalists, who were
scheduled to meet the
player at an evening press
The signing of Neymar
further boosts the Primera
Division champions’
attacking riches and the
prospect of him linking up
with four-time reigning
world player of the year
Lionel Messi is a
mouthwatering one.
It remains to be seen just
how Barca coach Tito
Vilanova will utilise the two
forwards in the same side,
but midfielder Andres
Iniesta is confident the
South American duo will
have no problems playing
alongside each other.
“The great players always
understand one another.
Leo will make Neymar better
and vice-versa. It’s a team
game and the sum of all
helps the club win,” said
the Spain international, who
believes Neymar has made
the right decision in
choosing Barca.
“He’s coming to the best
place that he could go to.
One of the best young
players is coming and that’s
what we all wants,” Iniesta
“He will contribute a lot,
he’s a player with
outstanding talent and
quality. He can unsettle
opponents, score goals and
give spectacular
performances at a club
which is ideal to continue
“It’s great news that we
can count on him.
Surrounded by the people
that he’s going to have
here, he will get better all
the time.”
