Neymar Transfers Skills to Barcelona

Posted on February 10, 2014 by


Neymar, Jr., is one of the world’s most famous soccer superstars. He was transferred to Barcelona over the summer from Santos Fc. The 21-year-old Brazilian forward has some of the most incredible foot skills the world has ever seen.

The move to Barcelona was one of the biggest transfers of the year, which also included the move of Gareth Bale from Tottenham to Real Madrid and Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid to Arsenal. All of these transfers made last summer the biggest season for soccer in the past couple years.

“Neymar can learn from the best player in the world. I don’t think he’ll ever be as good as Messi, but he can learn a thing or two and get really good,” junior Brendan Homan said.

Neymar has been one of the world’s biggest talents for some time now. His mesmerizing skill has been catching the eyes of the biggest clubs in the world for a couple years. He was most likely Real Madrid’s top target, but when he decided to take his talents to Barcelona, Madrid set their sights on the Welsh winger, Gareth Bale.

“I think Neymar is going to be really good. He has time to learn from Messi and become one of the best players in the world,” junior Wyatt Pensinger said.

But the transfer between Barcelona and Santos may not have been what it was said to be. The price of the transfer was apparently 57 million euros, but others are saying that as much as 95 million pounds were paid for the young prodigy.

According to, Barcelona president Rosell claims “Neymar cost 57.1 million euros, full stop.”

The Real Madrid media recently reported that as many as 95 million euros were swapped for the transfer of Neymar. They reported that about 60 million went to the player and his family, and approximately 35 million went to Santos through a “basic transfer fee”.

“I don’t know why they would try to hide the actual price of the transfer, why cause such a commotion,” junior Matt Hook said.

Neymar has caused quite a splash since joining the Catalan club, scoring and setting up goals. His astonishing skill has entertained the Barcelona supporters, and he shows how big of an impact he can contribute to the team.

He recently injured his right ankle during a game against Getafe, causing him to sit out for a few weeks. Barcelona still ended up coming out victorious ,2-0. Neymar is said to be out for about 3-4 weeks with a sprained tendon in his right ankle.

The star forward is hopeful to be back in time for the monster Champions League clash against the English giants, Manchester City. The game is tabbed to be one of, if not the, most entertaining games of the season, with two master-class attacking teams going at it.

“It’ll probably the most exciting game to watch this season. Manchester City has been really good lately, and Barcelona is always very good,” senior Doug Karpuek said.

Without Neymar, Barcelona’s attack will not be as threatening, and City may have the upper hand in the clash, but Barca has high hopes that he will be a 100% fit for the match.

“If Neymar isn’t back by the time Barcelona plays Manchester City, it’ll be a huge blow for the team, but they still have great players like Messi, Sanchez, Iniesta, Xavi, and Pedro,” senior Alec Leibensberger said.

The young sensation is looking to become one of the best players in history, following in the footsteps of other Brazilian legends like Ronaldinho, Kaka, Ronaldo (not Cristiano), and, most of all, Pele. The host country of the 2014 World Cup, Brazil, would surely like to see the 21-year-old shine for his country.
