Neymar has arrived in Barcelona. His flight from Rio de Janeiro touched down at El Prat at 13.02, and no sooner had he set foot on Catalan soil than he was transferred to the Camp Nou, the first time he has ever visited what will become his new home.

He then appeared before the FC Barcelona offices, where the numerous reporters were gathered to get the first pictures of the new signing in front of the club crest. In addition, a huge crowd of supporters accumulated around the Camp Nou to welcome the Brazilian superstar to his new club.

Neymar was then transferred to Barcelona Hospital for a series of medical checks. These will continue at the FC Barcelona Medical Services in the Ciutat Esportiva, after which the player will return to the Camp Nou. He is scheduled to sign his contract at 16.45, and then appear for his presentation to the fans on the Camp Nou turf at about 18.15. After that, at 19.30, he’ll be giving his first press conference.
