Neymar urges Wayne Rooney to join Barcelona, Moyes monitors

Brazilian star Neymar, who signed on the dotted line for Barcelona before helping his country clinch the Confederations Cup beating Spain on Sunday, has urged the reportedly on-sale Wayne Rooney to join him at Nou Camp - The Telegraph has reported.

"The style of football we [Barcelona] play and the level of the players we have - we are the perfect club for the top players to join," Neymar had said before his departure from Santos. "I have met Wayne on a few occasions and he seems a good guy but importantly, he is one of the players I admire most in the world.

"Wayne is one of the most gifted and technical players in the world. Of course, he would improve Barcelona. He would improve any club in Europe. And on a personal level, it would be a dream to play with him," the Brazilian striker said.

The newspaper also reported that the new Manchester United manager David Moyes, who is looking for a clear signal from his striker, has talked to Rooney on phone. And though Moyes would want him to stay, it won't serve any purpose if Rooney is unhappy at Old Trafford.

A bidding war is expected once Rooney's sale is made official. Arsenal and Chelsea are reported to be the most interested buyers, but PSG and Manchester City might also flex their financial muscle once they know Rooney wants to move.
