Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves insists Neymar can play with Lionel Messi. Barca are in talks with Santos about signing Neymar this summer.

"It would be a relief if Neymar signed because it would help Messi a lot," Alves told Marca.

"When two players are good, they understand each other better. They can play in different positions. I don't think compatibility would be a problem because Neymar is a very humble guy.

"The team would certainly be more competitive."
