Neymar was recently the guest of honor at the Campeonato Paulista final between Santos and Palmeiras, won by the former team.

The Brazilian spent time interacting with Santos players behind the scenes before taking to the pitch in front of a devoted fan base.

It appears the former Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain playmaker made the pledge during a visit to the Santos dressing room ahead of the final.

Rumors of Neymar joining his former Barcelona teammates Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez at Inter Miami in MLS had recently increased.
