Messi hopes Neymar can perform

Lionel Messi is hopeful that Neymar can replicate the sort of form he showed for the Brazilian national team when he joins up with Barcelona.

The young Seleccao forward was named Player of the Tournament as Luis Felipe Scolari's men won the Confederations Cup.

And the Argentine record-breaker is confident that the 21-year-old can produce the same performances for the Blaugrana.

“Hopefully Neymar can make a big contribution to Barcelona,” he told reporters.

“Hopefully he can continue to demonstrate the sort of performances that he's showed for Brail and Santos.

“I'm sure he will be a good signing for what we want to achieve.”
