FC Barcelona star Neymar has signed a deal to become the face – and mouth – of Listerine across Brazil.

The 23-year old will appear in national advertising campaigns over the next two years, after striking the deal with parent company Johnson & Johnson's Brazil division. Neymar announced the news on his Facebook page.

“We bet on Neymar for his charisma and [ability] to be an amplifier, contributing to the brand's growth,” said Ronaldo Art, Johnson & Johnson Brazil's consumer manager.

Listerine joins a roster of Neymar partners which includes Volkswagen, Claro, Panasonic, PokerStars, Nike and Rexona.

Once his FC Barcelona commitments are complete this season, Neymar is expected to play for Brazil in June's Copa America, which will take place in Chile.
