Barcelona officially presented their big new signing, Brazilian star, Neymar, before an estimated 56,500 fans at the Camp Nou. It’s reported that the young star will play in the number eleven shirt, which was worn by Thiago Alcantara during the 2012-13 La Liga season.
The 21 year old Brazilian has reportedly cost Barcelona 57 million euros. He signed his five year contract in the club’s offices before appearing on the pitch with the Barcelona anthem being played in the background. The size of the crowd goes some way to demonstrating the excitement the move has generated among Barca’s huge fan base, who are no doubt looking forward to watching Neymar team up with Messi on the pitch.
