"[I hope it will] be a partnership to make history," the 21-year-old attacker told reporters on Friday.  "We have everything for that to happen and it's an honor, a dream come true, to play alongside the best in the world and that is what persuaded me choose my European team."

Neymar also admitted that it was wrench to leave Brazil, but that he is now concentrated solely on making the most of his move to Camp Nou.

"I had a great story with Santos," the Selecao starlet acknowledged. "But now I have a new club, a new life and everything is focused on Barcelona."
