Barcelona are pushing to bring forward plans to sign Santos star Neymar this summer.

Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu hinted at the prospect last week after admitting they would like to buy Neymar after the Olympics.

With Barca having surrendered the title to Real Madrid last season, they so far have only added fullback Jordi Alba from Valencia.

The absence of more signings, says Sport, suggests Barca are planning one big name capture - with Neymar the man high on their agenda.
