The best goal you’ll see this week, courtesy of Neymar

It’s hard to put a price tag on a play, but in the case of the highly-sought after Neymar, each move the brilliant Brazilian starlet makes has to be worth a few million bucks in the bank.

The young Santos forward, part of a group of young Brazilians with whom the top European clubs have gone back and forth for what seems like years now, has been close or not close or nowhere near (depending on your news outlet of choice) signing with Chelsea for a while, though the club is reticent to fork over the £41 the Brazilian club is asking. Also in the race are the usual suspects like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, though Santos is clear that cut-rate offers will not be accepted.

Well, after the latest exploit of the mohawked 19-year-old, this stunning goal through virtually the entire Flamengo team in a scintillating 5-4 loss that also featured a Ronaldinho hattrick for Flamengo, the price might get ratcheted up a few million, and deservedly so. If you ever wanted to learn superlatives in Portuguese, this is your video.
