Watch amazing footage of Manchester City target Neymar in action (Video)

Football Banter has it on good understanding - well, alright, from the Brazilian girlfriend of a friend of a friend - that Manchester City are keeping very close tabs on Santos striker Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior - or Neymar for short.

The 17-year-old has already been hailed the new Robinho in his homeland.

Presumably for his astonishing skill, rather than a habit for going missing in away games , but you never know.

Anyway, even if this impeccably-sourced story proves to have as much substance as a handful of Copacabana sand , it's worth it if only to watch the video clip below.

Federico Macheda, eat your heart out.
