Neymar started his career at Santos before moving to Barcelona for £71.5 million, where he has flourished alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in a three-pronged attack.

Gabigol is also a product of Santos, having won two league titles there before leaving for Europe to join Inter Milan. His first season in Serie A has been underwhelming, but has recently been brightened by developments off the field.

The 20-year-old has scored just once for Inter this season, but has begun a relationship with Beckran which the couple made official on Instagram.

Both partners posted matching photographs on the social media network, with the model's black-and-white shot accompanied by a simple loveheart emoji.
