Neymar relocated to So Vicente with his family in 2003, when he started competing for the Portuguesa Santista youth team. Later that year, they relocated to Santos, where Neymar signed a contract. The family purchased their first home, a house close to Vila Belmiro, Santos’ home stadium, thanks to the success of his youth career and additional cash.

As Neymar’s income increased from 10,000 reais per month at age 15 to 125,000 reais per month at age 16, their quality of family life also improved. He earned his first full-time professional contract at age 17, was promoted to the Santos first squad, and started securing his first sponsorships.

Neymar started playing football at a young age and was quickly noticed by Santos, who made him an offer in 2003. He was then accepted into their junior system, which had previously produced Brazilian internationals like Coutinho, Clodoaldo, Diego, Elano, and Alex. In beginning his career at the team known as Peixe, he also joined players like Pepe, Pelé, and Robinho. Neymar and Paulo Henrique Ganso met in the youth academy and grew close friends as a result.

At the time, Real Madrid featured talents like Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham, Roberto Carlos, and Robinho. Neymar, then 14 years old, traveled to Spain to try out for the Real Madrid youth team. However, he left Madrid because his father had made the decision that it would be best for the young phenom to continue developing while playing for Santos at the time.

Despite just being 17 years old, Neymar made his professional debut on March 7, 2009. In a 2-1 victory over Oeste, he was added for the final 30 minutes. He scored his first goal for Santos against Mogi Mirim the following week. A month later, on April 11, Neymar scored the game-winning goal in a 2-1 victory over Palmeiras in the first leg of the 2009 Campeonato Paulista semifinal. However, Santos lost to Corinthians in the championship game 4-2 on the road. Neymar scored 14 goals in 48 appearances during his first campaign.

Neymar tied for third place among all scorers with six goals during Santos’ journey to the 2011 Copa Libertadores Finals. In a 5-4 loss to Flamengo in the Brasileiro Série A, he received the 2011 FIFA Puskas Award for his lone goal. He joined Diego Maradona, Romario, Pelé, and Zico in winning the 2011 South American Footballer of the Year award for the first time on December 31, 2011, by a record margin.

Santos revealed that they received two offers for Neymar on May 24, 2013. The next day, Neymar declared he would join Barcelona on May 27, 2013, following his participation in the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup. Other than to indicate he signed a five-year contract, neither Neymar nor the clubs disclosed information about the transfer fee or personal clauses.

After passing his physical examinations and signing a deal that would keep him with the team through June 2018, Neymar was introduced by Barcelona on June 3, 2013. A record-breaking crowd of 56,500 spectators watched Neymar be introduced at Camp Nou.

Neymar had a €57.1 million transfer fee and a €190 million release clause, according to club vice president Josep Maria Bartomeu at first. Barcelona’s physician recommended that he might need to put on weight in order to be physically ready to compete in Spanish football.
