Fabiano: Neymar should join Barcelona

23 February 2013 14:06

Sao Paulo striker Luis Fabiano says Neymar should move to Barcelona, suggesting he and Lionel Messi would be 'almost unstoppable'.

The Brazilian has long been linked with a move to Europe following his rise to prominence in recent years, with Camp Nou frequently being touted as the likeliest destination for the 21-year-old.

And his countryman – former Sevilla striker Fabiano – is the latest to fuel talk of a dream partnership between the South American duo.

"Messi and Neymar together? Neymar is very good but he needs the experience of playing in Europe," he told Xarxa Radio.

"It is very competitive there, but the two of them would be almost unstoppable.

"Because of Neymar's playing style, I think the best place for him to go is Spain, and Barca play the best football in Europe."

Fabiano said he was twice denied the chance to join Barcelona while still contracted to Sevilla by his then-president Jose Maria del Nido.

"(Joining Barcelona) nearly happened," he said. "You would have to ask del Nido why it didn't, he didn't want me to leave Sevilla.

"I had two opportunities to sign for them, but in the end del Nido rejected both proposals. He always made life difficult for me.

"It would have been the greatest moment of my career to play at Barca with so many great players, but the chance came and went."
