Santos's coach predicts that Neymar's next club will be Spanish giants Barcelona.

Santos coach Muricy Ramalho has said that he is confident Neymar will play for Barcelona in the future.

Ramalho did not say exactly when, but that he can see Neymar joining the long line of Brazilian strikers to have played for Barcelona.

"I don't know if it'll be now or later, but I think that Neymar will play for Barcelona," Marca quotes him as saying. "If he goes abroad it has to be to Barcelona, because they have a similar playing style.

"If we have to choose a future for Neymar, I think it's with them. Neymar has a contract until 2014 with Santos, and the people that are looking after his career say that he´ll stay until then, but then I reckon he´ll move on to Barcelona.

"There have always been great Brazilian forwards in Barca, and that's why I think that Neymar over there would continue that legacy."

Neymar has scored 17 goals in 28 caps for Brazil.
