Neymar will move to Europe in 2014

 

Santos striker Neymar will leave Santos for Europe in 2014, according to his father who told Sport in quotes reported by Lancenet that he wants him to join Lionel Messi at Barcelona.

Neymar, 20, has always insisted that he will be staying in Brazil until the end of the 2014 World Cup on home soil. However, now his father, has laid out the steps that he hopes his highly-rated son will take in the coming years.

"He wants to play in Europe," said Neymar da Silva. "We reduced his contract from 2015 to 2014 so that he can play there. But he is staying until the World Cup to allow Brazilian football to grow again."

He added: "I believe Barcelona is the best path. Barcelona's football is like that of Neymar. They score from inside the penalty area like Neymar. We have to wait. Maybe Barcelona won't want Neymar in 2014.

"How can I say now that Neymar wants to go to Barcelona? The club can't say anything either. It's better that everyone stays quiet for now."
