Neymar is currently shining for Brazil at the London Olympics, scoring once against Egypt before playing a starring role against Belarus, in which he set up two goals and scored a breathtaking free-kick in-between.

His dazzling skills wowed all 66,212 spectators throughout the Group C match at Old Trafford, with the crowning glory coming when he bent a set-piece over the wall and past the sprawling Aleksandr Gutor.

The 20-year-old has been linked with a move to Europe for some time and Bartomeu made no attempt to hide Barcelona's interest.

"Neymar? We would all like to see him joining after the Olympics. If he decides to come to Europe we'll try to make it Barca," he said.

A player of Neymar's calibre is unlikely to arrive to the Nou Camp cheaply and he is contracted to Santos for at least the next two years.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
