Santos star wants Nou Camp switch?
Santos ace Neymar has fuelled ongoing speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona by saying it would be ‘a dream’ to play alongside Lionel Messi.
The Brazilian striker is on the radar of a host of top European clubs, having been continually linked with Primera Liga giants Barca and Real Madrid, as well as Chelsea and Manchester City.
The 20-year-old, who is contracted at Santos until 2014, has hinted Camp Nou would be his preferred destination after stating his desire to play alongside Argentinian superstar Messi.
“To play alongside Messi would be a dream or even just training with him would make me happy,” the 20-year-old was quoted as saying by Marca.

So what can we glean from these comments? Well clearly we can surmise that Neymar would like to join Lionel Messi at Barcelona and it’s a move that could well occur though the Catalan side are reportedly short of the kind of funds needed to win the race to sign the Santos star.
This has led to speculation that sides with more capital at their disposal, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Man City and PSG, could have a decent shot at signing the talented Brazilian.
Neymar has been scoring goals for fun with Santos over the past four seasons, netting 118 goals in 198 appearances whilst notching up 16 goals in 25 matches for the Brazilian national team.
