Watching: Brazilian forward Neymar held a news conference at the Nou Camp on Monday after signing at Barcelona. The thought of playing alongside Lionel Messi has Neymar feeling like "one of the luckiest men in the world" after the Brazilian committed five years of his career to Barcelona on Monday The 21-year-old striker held a press conference at the end of a day which had seen him fly to Barcelona to sign a five-year contract with the Catalan giants, with 57 million euros (74.65 million US dollars) going to Santos nine days after a preliminary agreement between the clubs was made public. Before his decision to join Barca became public, it had been established that Santos had received a similar financial offer from their fierce rivals Real Madrid. It then fell to the player to end constant speculation over his preferred destination. A Brazil international since 2010, Neymar has already scored 20 goals for his country and was representing his country in a 2-2 friendly draw against England at the Maracana Stadium only hours before flying to Europe.
