Barcelona chief Sanllehí in Brazil to nail down Neymar deal

Barcelona chief Raul Sanllehí is leading a club delegation in Brazil this week to confirm a deal for Santos star Neymar.

Sanllehí's party arrived in Brazil yesterday and will go straight into talks with Neymar and Santos about their agreement for the attacker.

With Real Madrid and Chelsea making an aggressive approach to Neymar's camp in recent days, Barca are anxious to confirm terms with Neymar and his club.

There remains some confusion around whether Neymar will leave Santos this summer or after the 2014 World Cup.

Barca midfielder Xavi, meanwhile, said yesterday: "Players like Neymar can fit into any team."
