The agent of Neymar admits the Santos star "chose money" in moving to Barcelona. Wagner Ribeiro has revealed the young Brazilian will join Barca on a huge salary.

"He will earn less than Lionel Messi, but with a salary like Kaka has today at Real Madrid," said Ribeiro.

"The boy grew up and chose the money. He asked to play for Barcelona as it is the club of his heart. (Real president) Florentino Perez is in love with Neymar, is passionate about him.

"He was talking on the phone for 15 minutes with me and thanking my attitude because he knows I never hid things from him: if he had been my son, I would have liked him to play for Real Madrid."
