Barça vice-president: We will try to sign Neymar when he's ready to leave Santos
Barcelona vice-president Josep Bartomeu has revealed that the club will make a move for Brazilian sensation Neymar once he is ready to leave Santos.
The 21-year-old is continually being linked with a move to Europe, in particular with Barça, but he has repeatedly insisted that he is no rush to leave his native country before the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Nevertheless, the Blaugrana are continuing to monitor Neymar's situation, and are ready to pounce when the Seleção star decides to leave the Peixe.
Bartomeu told La Porteria: "Neymar has to step up first and say that he's ready to leave Santos. When that happens, Barca will be ready to try and sign him, because the technical staff want him.
"It is always good to sign an interesting player. We look at home first before we turn our attention to the transfer market."
Neymar’s contract is due to expire after the World Cup but he previously stated that he does not want to leave his boyhood club for free.
