The Brazilian joined the Camp Nou outfit in the summer, but has already established himself in Tata Martino’s XI.

And the former Arsenal midfielder has insisted that the Selecao youngster has enough quality to become one of the best ever.

“I never got the chance to watch him play but Cruyff had an incredible change of pace, as Neymar does.
