The 20-year-old, one of the hottest properties in world football, has been linked with moves to Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.

Neymar recently played down the speculation and said the time was not yet right for him to leave Santos, where his contract will expire in 2014.

Now his club coach has aired his views, hoping that the forward will eventually choose Camp Nou as his destination.

"It would be amazing to see a Barcelona side with Neymar and Messi", Ramalho told La Xarxa radio.

"Barcelona is a very similar side to ours. The players like to pass the ball around. I think Neymar would be best suited to Barcelona. Real Madrid plays a different style of football.

"Neymar is destined for Europe after the World Cup. He must choose the club he goes to wisely.

"The best option for me is Barca. Messi is close to becoming the greatest of all time, but he is yet to win the World Cup. Only then will he be at the level of Pele and Maradona."

m a big Rafa fan, but when he substitutes Ronaldo after 60 minutes of his first game, which Real draw 1-1, I don't see the Real fans being patient. He'll be gone before October is out.
