Neymar joined Barcelona from Santos in the summer and is his country's star name going into a home World Cup next year.

Ronaldo, who was instrumental as Brazil won World Cup 2002, thinks that the youngster will return home next summer better than ever.

"He has evolved and I am sure he will evolve even more," Ronaldo told reporters.

"If he keeps getting better he will be the best player in the world.

"I'm sure he'll be coming to Brazil [for the World Cup] an even better player."

Ronaldo added that Neymar's teammate Lionel Messi is the current best player in the world.
