Barcelona will play two friendlies against Brazilian outfit Santos as part of its deal to secure Neymar, local media reported on Monday.

The first match is earmarked for the Camp Nou in August in what is likely to be Neymar's debut for the Catalan club, according to Lancenet.

The return fixture will be played in Brazil at a date that is yet to be agreed.

It is understood the exhibition matches were a key bargaining tool used by Santos in negotiations over the 21-year-old.

Neymar was officially unveiled as a Barcelona player on Monday in front of 56,500 fans at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona revealed it had paid 57 million euros for the striker, who will return to Brazil on Tuesday to prepare for the Selecao's international friendly against France in Porto Alegre on Sunday.
