Undoubtedly the most hyped young player in the world today, Neymar's reputation is not without its foundations. He has been the star player for Santos for the past three seasons, leading them to the Brazilian Campeonato Paulista and Copa Do Brasil in 2010 and the 2011 Copa Libertadores. In total, the young prodigy has hit 107 goals in 179 appearances while at the club and this record, coupled with his supreme marketability, has got a host of European giants after his signature.
