Neymar Jr and Rafinha this summer / FCB

 Neymar has stirred up tremendous interest on social media thanks to a photograph of himself with Michael Jordan. The Barça striker finds himself in Las Vegas on holiday and by sheer fortune, he found himself staying in the same hotel as the greatest basketball player of all time. The two had not previously met and Neymar wrote that for him it was “a dream come true.”

On arriving in the USA Neymar had also made the headlines by posting another photo of himself with two current NBA stars, Trevor Ariza and James Harden of the Houston Rockets.

The Brazilian has not limited himself to bumping into stars of basketball. During his holidays in the US he will take the opportunity to see the fight between José Aldo Junior and Conor McGregor in Las Vegas.

Another member of the Barça squad took the chance to get to know a well known face from the world of boxing. Rafinha was in the United States also where he took a photo of himself with legend of the ring Floyd Mayweather, five time world champion at five different weights.
