Barcelona president Sandro Rosell admits they had to fight off late competition from Real Madrid to sign Neymar.

Neymar arrived in the summer from Santos for €57 million.

"When he was signing the contract with us, he was still getting emails from Madrid," revealed Rosell.

"(Lionel) Messi and Neymar get along very well. When I see them in the locker room, they get along well, fantastically well."
