Neymar's €57 million move from Santos over the summer ended a protracted pursuit for the highly-rated 21-year-old.
The prospect of multiple Ballon d'Or winner Messi lining up with Neymar up front has excited many neutrals, and the player himself believes that the partnership can yield something special.
"[I hope it will] be a partnership to make history," the 21-year-old attacker told reporters on Friday.
"We have everything for that to happen and it's an honour, a dream come true, to play alongside the best in the world and that is what persuaded me choose my European team."
Neymar also admitted that it was tough leaving Santos, but insists that he is looking forward to life at Barcelona.
"I had a great story with Santos," the Selecao starlet acknowledged. "But now I have a new club, a new life and everything is focused on Barcelona."
