In the pantheon of soccer, Neymar Júnior is a God. He is celebrated for his superhuman artistry on the field, as well as his magnetic good looks and star power.

Neymar's professional career started at the tender age of 17, when he started playing for Santos. He helped the club win two successive Campeonato Paulista championships, a Copa do Brasil and the Copa Libertadores in 2011, which was the team's first continental title since 1963. His brilliance as a young player was recognized and he was awarded the South American Footballer of the Year twice. He began playing for Barcelona in 2013 and helped bring the club to glory with a multitude of victories. Currently, Neymar plays for Paris Saint-Germain with a contract worth €222 million ($258 million in US Dollars) making him the world's highest paid player.
When it comes to his glamorous life (including a highly-publicized love life) he has demonstrated that his skills off the field are comparable to those on the field, and he has navigated fame and fortune with ease. Neymar, now in his mid-twenties, has indicated that he is in no rush to enter into a long-term relationship. This Brazilian forward has been quite literally forward with more than just a few beautiful ladies over the years. Below is a list of Neymar's girlfriends, hottest hookups and exes.
