Full name: Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior.


The Brazilian forward came through the ranks at Santos FC.

After making his debut at the age of 17, he quickly became one of Brazil's great young prospects.

Despite a petition for him to be selected for the 2010 World Cup squad, he was not selected by coach Dunga.

During the summer of 2010, he was reportedly close to joining Chelsea.

After a few successful seasons at Santos during which he helped his club to a Copa Libertadores title, he joined Barcelona in summer 2013.

Neymar was included in Brazil's 2014 World Cup squad.

He joined Paris St Germain in August 2017 with a five-year contract for a reported world record fee of £198million.
