Brazilian star will shine at Barcelona

Brazilian side Santos has said goodbye to one of the greatest talents in football today, that is Brazilian star Neymar.

The 21-year-old has put pen to paper on a five-year contract with the Spanish giants Barcelona, but will he fit in their structure as they have many players competing for up-front positions.

In 2003, he was signed for Santos and at his time at the Brazilian club he has bagged over 50 goals in 100 appearances and for his national side has been on the core-sheet 20 times in 32 matches which is a phenomenal statistic for a player with such great talent.

In my opinion, Barcelona should play a formation structure of 4-4-2 with Lionel Messi and Neymar up-front so they can cause havoc and the midfield of the Blaugrauna to stay strong with Fabregas, Xavi, Iniesta and co to control the central midfield. or possibly a 4-3-2-1 being Neymar the central striker and Messi and Villa behind him, either way it will work.

I’m sure Neymar will make a great debut once he puts the colurs of Barcelona on as he will continue to be a scoring machine and also stand out for the national side for the World Cup 2014 next year.
