Neymar, like many other football players in Brazil, started off as a street footballer. But his father, who had played professional football, helped him in taking the game seriously so that he could become a professional. Neymar joined the youth ranks at ‘FC Santos’ when he was only 11 years old. In fact he was accepted into the youth program of the popular Spanish club ‘Real Madrid’ but he decided to stay back in Brazil after he was offered a higher pay. Throughout his time at ‘Santos,’ Neymar scored one spectacular goal after another, and his skills became the talk of the town. As a result, the biggest clubs in the world vied with each other to sign him. In 2013, he signed with ‘Barcelona’ and immediately made an impact before finally winning the treble for the Catalan club in 2015. During the course of his career, Neymar went on to become a prominent player for the Brazilian national team and helped his team reach the semi-final of the 2014 ‘World Cup’ which was held in Brazil. Neymar is without a doubt one of the leading footballers in the world and is all set to become one of the greatest footballers of his generation.
