As speculation continues to grow surrounding where England international Wayne Rooney will be playing next season Barcelona new boy Neymar is urging Rooney to follow in his footsteps and sigh for Catalan giants Barcelona.

Following a secret meeting with new Manchester United manager David Moyes it is believed that Rooney told the new boss that he would only stay at Old Trafford if he was offered the current big money terms that he currently has, and with Barcelona, Arsenal, and Chelsea interested in him his options are open.

Ahead of last night’s Confederations Cup final between Spain and Brazil which Brazil later won 3-0 Brazilian starlet Neymar suggested that Rooney should sign for Barcelona.

Neymar said:  “The style of football Barcelona 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.”
