The Brazil international is in no doubt that he can do wonderful things alongside the Argentina attacker during their time together at Camp Nou
The prospect of Brazil's Confederations Cup hero linking up with the four-time Ballon d'Or winner has got the entire footballing world talking, with Russia coach Fabio Capello claiming the the pair could make the Blaugrana unbeatable.
Neymar, who was signed from Santos for €57 million [£48m] earlier this summer, is just as excited and optimistic about being paired with Messi.
"[I hope it will] be a partnership to make history," the 21-year-old attacker told reporters on Friday.
"We have everything for that to happen and it's an honour, a dream come true, to play alongside the best in the world and that is what persuaded me choose my European team."
Neymar also admitted that it was wrench to leave Brazil, but that he is now concentrated solely on making the most of his move to Camp Nou.
"I had a great story with Santos," the Selecao starlet acknowledged. "But now I have a new club, a new life and everything is focused on Barcelona."
Neymar, who won the Golden Ball at the Confederations Cup, signed a five-year contract with Barcelona upon his arrival.
