The proud custodian of Brazils illustrious number 10, in the summer of 2014 Neymar has the chance that eluded the likes of Pele, Zico and Ronaldinho before him-to wear the iconic shirt in a World Cup on home soil. It promises to be the ultimate showcase for his flair and finishing. Aged just 22, it is the only major tournament he has yet to compete in. He became the poster boy for Brazilian club side Santos while still a teenager, starring as they enjoyed domestic success and lifted South America??s Copa Libertadores for the first time since Pels days at the club. A 57 million euro move to Barcelona followed as he teamed up with Leo Messi, forming one of the most fearsome partnerships in football history. Luca Caioli, author of bestselling biographies of Messi and Ronaldo, looks back on Neymar??s unstoppable rise with exclusive private access to his friends and family, coaches, teammates and adoring fans.
