The Brazilian pair are good friends and Alves had a big influence convincing Neymar to move to the Nou Camp.
"You must have a good friend alongside you to help you with the things you need. I have Dani, who is really important in helping me adapt, both at the club and outside it. He's someone who has helped me quite a lot," he said.
But Neymar is also a family guy and he admitted: "My family continue to be as they always have been - they're helping me."
