Nike commemorated Wayne Rooney reaching that landmark for Manchester United with a special 'WR250' version of their Hypervenom but it turns out Neymar is also upgrading his footwear.

The Barcelona star showed off the lime green boots in an Instagram post prior to training as he prepares to face Real Sociedad in Thursday's Copa del Rey quarter-final second leg.

The boots feature the words 'Alegria' and 'Ousadia', which translate to 'joy' and 'daring', terms that are also tattooed on the Brazil star's calf and represent his attitude towards football.

And he'll be hoping the boots help maintain his impressive recent run of form, with Neymar having scored in each of his last three appearances for the Catalan club.
