Ladies and gentlemen it's official. Neymar is a Barcelona player.
After traveling across the Atlantic in a fancy plane and arriving in Barcelona at the Camp Nou, Brazilian wonder kid Neymar has officially signed his new contract with the Blaugrana.
Just in case you don't believe it and what photographic evidence, the FC Barcelona Twitter account sent out a lovely photo of Neymar and team president Sandro Rosell shaking hands.
There's just something great about soccer and the contrast in styles between front office types and players. You have Rosell looking smart in his suit while Neymar is rocking a t-shirt that probably cost as much as I make in a month and backwards hat that cost more than I make next month. That sounded really bitter but it wasn't, I promise. Neymar has skills that people are willing to pay absurd amounts of money for and that's ok with me.
Neymar was greeting at the Camp Nou by a huge contingent of Barca supporters and spent a few minutes taking some photos outside the club offices before taking care of the paperwork inside.
Anyway, congrats to Neymar and welcome to the biggest stage in the soccer world. If this works out, the attacking duo of Lionel Messi and the young Brazilian could be truly frightening...in a completely fun way.
