Junior, 18, finalised his move to the Spanish giants from Flamengo on Friday for a fee of £40m and the teenager has spoken of his admiration for the Paris Saint-Germain forward.
Watch what he said about Neymar in the video below:
The 26-year-old’s tournament was eventful but he could not stop his nation going out to Belgium in the last eight.
“My sadness was great, it was very sad and bad, and the biggest sadness I have experienced in my career,” Neymar, who has also dismissed speculation he will move to Real Madrid this summer, said at a fundraising night on behalf of his charity.

The 26-year old had an injury-hit first season with the French champions, but before he sustained a foot injury that kept him out of the latter half of PSG’s 2017-18 campaign he didn’t quite enjoy Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani‘s company.
And according to what AS claim, Neymar considers the Barca star as a ‘winner’ and hence wants PSG to try and go for him.
Barcelona though have Suarez in their plans for the upcoming season, and wouldn’t consider selling him as of yet, let alone selling him to PSG, and strengthening their Champions League ambitions.
The Spanish giants could not secure Antoine Griezmann’s services from Atletico Madrid and are anyway looking for a winger to play alonsgside Suarez and Lionel Messi.
Neymar meanwhile, has been targeted by Real Madrid, and his relationship with the Ligue 1 side could be put to the test in such circumstances.
