Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova is happy to go against Johan Cruyff and sign Santos star Neymar. Cruyff has urged his old club to ignore Neymar's potential signing, but El Mundo Deportivo says Vilanova regards the Brazilian highly and is confident finding room in his team for the winger.

Vilanova is no favourite of Cruyff's, who has questioned his appointment this season.

Barca directors are yet to ask Vilanova about pushing through a deal for Neymar, but he'll embrace the prospect when they come knocking.
