A day after Neymar played his final match for Santos, Brazil’s hottest footballing talent officially ruptured his contract with the club paving the way for his move to European giants Barcelona.

The 21-year-old striker, who became the Brazilian club’s top scorer since Pele, is expected to undergo a medical next week in the Catalan capital after which he will put pen to paper on a five-year deal.

The deal is reportedly worth up to 60 million euros.

Before joining up with his new teammate at Barcelona however the striker will be on international duty at the Confederations Cup, which starts in Brazil on 15 June.
