Espnfc - Barcelona and Brazil forward Neymar is the only football player who has been named in Time Magazine's 100 most influential people on the planet.

Neymar is included in the "Icon" section of a list which also includes fellow sports stars LeBron James and Tom Brady.

Having joined Barcelona from Santos in 2013، Neymar's reputation has grown steadily alongside five-time world player of the year Lionel Messi.

Now 25، he is widely viewed as the player most likely to take over from Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the game's stand-out performer.

"He is a young man who at 25 is well on his way to becoming the best player in the world،" former England captain David Beckham writes in Time Magazine.

"A once-in-a-generation type of footballer who has fans on their feet whenever he gets the ball."
