Brazilian striker Neymar has agreed in principle to join Barcelona, July 1.

The 21-year-old striker is understood to have signed a deal last week to join the Spanish giants following the Confederations Cup in Brazil, reports Xinhua.
Neymar’s current club Santos was expected to ratify the deal yesterday.

As anticipation surrounding the move intensified, Barcelona star Lionel Messi said Neymar would be a “wonderful signing” for the Catalan club.

“I don’t know if in the end he will sign with Barca, only he knows the answer to that,” Messi told TV channel Qatar Alkass.
