Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova has expressed his delight at the club's capture of Brazilian international Neymar

The Catalan club confirmed on Sunday that the 21-year-old will join them on a five-year contract in a deal that is expected to cost the Spanish champions around 50 million euros and Vilanova hailed the player for not choosing the option to earn more money at other clubs. 

“We have to congratulate the secretarial team for the signing of Neymar,” he said at a press conference after Barca’s 2-0 defeat of Espanyol on Sunday night.
