“Neymar will be Cul é”
This Thursday, his manager, Muricy Ramalho, couldn’t put a date on it, but had no doubts as to where the forward’s future lay: “I don’t know if it’ll be now or later, but I think that Neymar will play for Barcelona”.
Barcelona’s interest in Neymar is no big secret, and it seems only a matter of time that the Brazilian star, who has a contract until 2014, sets foot in the Camp Nou – be it this summer or next.
This Thursday, his manager, Muricy Ramalho, couldn’t put a date on it, but had no doubts as to where the forward’s future lay: “I don’t know if it´ll be now or later, but I think that Neymar will play for Barcelona. If he goes abroad it has to be to Barcelona, because they have a similar playing style. If we have to choose a future for Neymar, I think it´s with them. Neymar has a contract until 2014 with Santos, and the people that are looking after his career say that he´ll stay until then, but then I reckon he´ll move on to Barcelona”, he predicted.
The manager assured, moreover, that Barcelona’s history fit perfectly with once again having a Brazilian striker on its books: “There have always been great Brazilian forwards in Barça, and that´s why I think that Neymar over there would continue that legacy. Ronaldo, Romario and Rivaldo have worn the Barça shirt, and are the best in the world. Neymar has to go to follow in their footsteps. He will be one of the Barcelona greats just as Ronaldo, Romario and Rivaldo were.”
Ramlho firmly believes that “there is a place for Neymar in the Barcelona squad”. The coach thinks that, just like Messi, Neymar “is a great player” and that “to see them together would be a sight to see”. http://ow.ly/iC4yX
