Neymar had a huge second season for Barcelona, scoring 39 goals and adding seven assists in all competitions.

After a disappointing debut season in which he failed to reach even 20 goals, the Brazilian reminded his critics why the club paid $65 million for him two summers ago by playing a crucial role in the treble-winning campaign. Neymar has every intention of remaining at Barcelona and continuing their dominance of Europe.
