Brazilian legend Falcao says its time Santos star Neymar made the move to Europe.

Barcelona are reported to have already agreed a €58 million fee with Santos for the young attacker.

"It was decided that he did not leave before the Copa America," Falcao reflected when talking about Neymar on SporTV.

"I think Europe has a capacity, a tactical culture that we do not yet have here [in Brazil].

"It gives you an understanding of the game…I do not know for sure, but for the experience and the culture, speaking from a footballing angle, it would be an advance.

"The national team would do better because he would have a different makeup, he'd grow in a way that would help a lot."
