Scolari: Neymar wouldn't play at Barca
Barcelona vice-president Josep Bartomeu has revealed that the Catalans are ready to make a move for Santos sensation Neymar once he gives a signal that he is ready to leave his current club.

The Brazil international is continually being linked with a move to Europe, but he has repeatedly insisted that he is no rush to leave his native country before World Cup 2014 in his homeland.

Nevertheless, the Blaugrana continue to monitor Neymar's situation, and are ready to pounce when the 21-year-old decides to leave Santos.

"Neymar has to step up first and say that he's ready to leave Santos. When that happens, Barca will be ready to try and sign him, because the technical staff want him," Bartomeu told La Porteria.

"It is always good to sign an interesting player. We look at home first before we turn our attention to the transfer market."

Neymar has a contract with Peixe until after the 2014 World Cup.
