Neymar officially joins Barcelona


Brazil striker Neymar signed a five-year-contract with FC Barcelona on Monday completing a move that will unite the 21 year old with Lionel Messi in a thrilling attacking partnership.

The young sensation, who was with the Seleção preparing for the Confederations Cup, was allowed to travel to Spain after Sunday’s friendly against England in Rio de Janeiro.

Neymar, who was greeted by almost 60,000 fans at the Nou Camp stadium, arrives only a day after the catalans matched the La Liga’s record tally of 100 points for a campaign when they hammered Malaga 4-1 in their final game on Saturday.
