Legendary midfielder Xavi has tipped Barcelona teammate Neymar to replace Lionel Messi as the world's best player once the Argentine No. 10's career has run its course.
Born on February 5, 1992, in São Paulo, Brazil, Neymar drew attention for his impressive soccer abilities at an early age. He emerged as a star for Santos FC as a teenager, winning four straight Player of the Year awards while becoming one of Brazil's most popular public figures. In May 2013, the gifted youngster announced his move to Europe to play for Spanish powerhouse FC Barcelona.
