While the fact that his name is being linked with Barcelona is no novelty , many are now reporting that the transfer is almost a formality.
They have gone as far as to publish manipulated photos of the Santos striker wearing a Barça jersey in photomontages .
The pictures depict Neymar doing everything from playing with a Barcelona jersey to him being presented as a new signing at a press conference in what is widely accepted will be his next destination. Check out the photos at Notichampions , Palco Catolico and Mundo Futebol .
Neymar appears to be the main objective for Bar celona ahead of the 2013/14 , but Santos continues to openly refuse to sell their best player, at least b efore the World Cup in Brazil .
