The Blaugrana forward feels that the starlet would fit in well at Camp Nou and suggests that the added competition to make the starting line-up would benefit the teamBarcelona attacker Pedro has lavished praise on Santos prodigy Neymar, insisting that the young star's time to get used to the Catalan side's style of play would be a short one should he eventually end up representing the Liga champions.
The Brazil international has long been linked with a move to Camp Nou, with others clubs amongst Europe's elite also being touted as potential destinations, and the Spain star feels that any competition for starting positions that the 21-year-old might bring would be beneficial – even for himself.
"Neymar is a great player," Pedro told a press conference. "If he comes here it'll be great for the team because it will make us even stronger.
"It means there would be more competition up front but that's good to keep on learning. I hope he comes. He'd fit in well here."
While Neymar may be the highest-profile name linked with Barcelona, fans are calling for multiple signings this summer after seeing injuries ravage the Catalans' squad over the course of the 2012-13 season.
"It's normal that there is talk of reinforcements," the 25-year-old opined. "Barca need goals and attacking contributions and that's why every year the forward line is changed."
On his own career, Pedro admits that his future lies in the club's hands but would prefer to stay with the Liga champions as he feels that he has plenty more to offer.
"My intention is to stay here and be a part of this great club," he enthused. "The decision isn't down to us but I hope to get back and feel good again and bring more to the team next season."
