One of the key players of Barcelona could have been evolving today with Real Madrid since the age of 13. In fact, Neymar had the opportunity to join Real but did not and here's the reason why...

Neymar is undoubtedly one of the best players in world. In Barcelona he is definitely a key player, along with his two MSN partners Leo Messi and Luis Suarez. He seems to be very happy in Catalonia, where he has already won two Liga, a Champions League, two King's Cup and World Club Cup. The Brazilian also has an incredible popularity rating in his current club.

However, with his crazy talent, Neymar has the ideal profile to wear the tunic of... Real Madrid. Unsurprisingly, the captain of the Seleçao had already been targeted by the merengue club when he was still in Brazil. The Barcelona player explained why he did not sign with the White House to L'Equipe Magazine despite the fact that he had the opportunity at the age of 13.

"I was 13 and it was the first time I came to Europe. At that time, I did not feel comfortable, I was unhappy and unable to stay away from Brazil at such a young age. I was not feeling it and I wasn't in a hurry, there was no rush. The priority was my happiness and I wanted to become a professional soccer player first, and then I would come to Europe."

You know how the story ends. A few years later it is finally with Barcelona that the talented Brazilian signs at the age of 21. Too bad for Real fans...

Since then, Neymar has been living the crazy life of a super talented soccer player. Watch him cook omelettes with his... feet!
