Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves admits he's pushing Brazil teammate Neymar to join him at the Nou Camp.

The Santos star is also a target for Real Madrid, though Barca are regarded as favourites for his signature.

"I've always invited him to play with us," said Alves. "I've always said this and I have advised him that if he wants to play in Europe, the most suitable team and the style of game for him is Barcelona. The advice has been given."
