Neymar Eager To Link Up With Messi

Brazilian starlet Neymar admits that he is relishing the prospect of linking up with talented players such as Lionel Messi, Xavi and Andres Iniesta.

The Santos attacker revealed that he would be signing a five-year contract with Barcelona this summer and he admits that he is already thinking about next season.

The player said that he hopes to return to Santos one day, but he is now focused on improving his career in Spain.

"To play with Messi, Xavi and Iniesta is a great honour," he told reporters his final game with Santos - a 0-0 draw with Flamengo.

"It's a dream to be going to Barca. I leave Santos through the front door. I hope to return to my second home [in future], which is Santos.

"I feel fantastic, very happy and grateful to Santos and I'm already thinking about Barca."
