Neymar backing Barcelona bid for Man Utd ace Rooney

Neymar hopes Barcelona can sign Manchester United star Wayne Rooney. Neymar was amazed by Rooney during England's draw with Brazil last month in the Maracana.

He said: "It does not surprise me at all that Barcelona is Wayne Rooney's first choice - we are most players' first choice.

"The style of football we play and the level of the players we have - we are the perfect club for the top players to join.

"I have met Wayne on a few occasions and he seems a good guy, but importantly he is one of the players I admire most in the world.

"Wayne is one of the most gifted and technical players in the world.

"Of course he would improve Barcelona - he would improve any club in Europe.

"And on a personal level it would be a dream to play with him."
