Santos coach Muricy Ramalho says Neymar should join Barcelona.

Manchester City are also battling for the young Brazilian.

"If you are going abroad you should go to Barcelona, because they have a similar playing style to the Brazilian league. If we have to choose something for Neymar I think the best choice is Barcelona," Ramalho told The Network Radio.

"In the history of Barcelona there have always been great Brazilian players and I think Neymar will be one of the greats if he goes there," continued the 57-year-old.

"Ronaldo, Romario and Rivaldo were all among the best in the world when they played for Barcelona, and Neymar has to go to prove that."
