Neymar: Barcelona transfer target

The 21-year-old Neymar has been strongly linked with Barca as Europe's leading clubs continue to track the Santos forward, whose contract in his homeland is ticking down with a move to Europe expected sooner rather than later.

Some reports even suggest the deal is done, but that has been denied and so Alves has continued his lobbying campaign.

"I've been at it for ages," he said in an interview with FIFA.com.

"When the rumours of him making a move to Europe started I told him he should come to Barcelona."

While Neymar would appear to have his pick of clubs, Alves believes Barcelona are a special case.

"It's more than a club," he added.

"The motto says it all: they look after you, they pamper you and they always treat you and your family well. Look, it's got values that virtually no other club has, and that's what makes it unique.

"Everyone says you can't compete with Barcelona, but if you go to the club, you'll see that they work from the bottom up and that's why we've got all these great players. If you look at the signings they make, they just buy what they need.

"The rest of the players are all from the youth set-up. They made a commitment to it and the results are there."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
