Messi: Neymar To Barca Would Marvelous

Lionel Messi hopes that Neymar joins him at Barcelona next season.

Speculation is mounting that Brazil star Neymar has already agreed personal terms with the Spanish champions.

And while his club Santos insists that there is no official deal in place, for the first time a club insider has admitted that Neymar has his heart set on a move.

"The conversations with Barca are continuing," Santos representative Odilio Rodrigues is quoted as saying in Spanish daily Marca.

"Neymar wants to leave and we are trying to achieve an agreement. If there is a good offer for Santos, and for the player, we will analyse it. We will receive offers from other European clubs."

The rumour mill suggests that a mega money deal between Barca and Santos is imminent, and could even be signed before the upcoming Confederations Cup, meaning Neymar’s last game in Brazilian club football could be as soon as this weekend.

On a promotional tour in Qatar, Barca superstar Messi is following the Neymar speculation with interest.

He says he has no inside info regarding Neymar’s future, but that he would love the chance to play alongside the precociously talented 21-year-old.

"Only the player knows if he will sign for the club or not, nobody else knows," Messi said in response to the Neymar rumours.

"For us [Barca] he would be a marvelous addition.

“He is the type of player who offers individual solutions different from the rest.

“He is a great player, who is very good in one-on-ones with opponents."

Would Messi and Neymar be a good combination for Barca?
