According to a report by Spain's El Mundo, Neymar's new girlfriend is 26-year-old lawyer Elisabeth Martinez.
The report claims that the romance began with some flirting on a social networking site that went on for a few weeks. Neymar and Martinez have often been spotted together in Barcelona across several restaurants and night clubs.
The couple were recently seen together at the Boca Grande restaurant, besides being snapped together at the Opium and Sutton night clubs.

Martinez has often posted pictures of herself wearing the Barcelona jersey on Instagram. It is learnt that she also sends the mercurial forward messages of
support before every match.
Since his break-up with Bruna Marquezine last August, the 22-year-old Neymar has been rumoured to be involved with numerous women including medical student Camila Karam, Playboy model Patricia Jordane and Brazilian supermodel Gabriella Lenzi.
In November, a report in American celebrity news website TMZ reported that Neymar was dating Serbian model Sasha Vucelic. The player, however, has never confirmed any of these reports.
Neymar laughs it off
Recently, Neymar even refuted a report that he is dating the 26-year-old Barcelona lawyer. He laughed off the report and wrote on Twitter: "If all these girlfriends who they are linking to me were true, I would have to live in a country that will allow me to have 10 women.
