Neymar's love life continues to make international headlines, and it is back on the limelight again. The Barca star is reportedly dating a lawyer from Barcelona who is four years his senior.

According to a report by Spanish news outlet El Mundo, Neymar's new love interest is 26-year-old lawyer Elisabeth Martinez. The report said that their romance started with a little flirtation on social networking sites that went on for weeks. Neymar and Martinez were often spotted in several establishments in Barcelona City, such as the Boca Grande restaurant, Opium night club and Sutton night club.

"She (Martinez) comes from a wealthy family in Barcelona," wrote the website. "For more than two years, she was worked at law firm Rincon Juridico Abogados in Barcelona."

The report said that Martinez often posts pictures of her wearing the Catalan jersey on social media. She also reportedly sends messages of support for Neymar before each game.

Since Neymar broke up with Bruna Marquezine, the 22-year-old Brazilian football star has been rumoured to have gone out with a number of women including medical student Camila Karam and Playboy model Patricia Jordane. In November, TMZ reported that Neymar was dating Serbian model Sasha Vucelic. Neymar has never confirmed such stories.

Just recently, Neymar has slammed the report claiming that he is seeing the 26-year-old Barcelona laywer in a tweet. Apparently, there is not an ounce of truth in recent news about his love life as Neymar simply laughed off the story.

"If all these girlfriends who they are linking to me were true, I would have to live in a country that will allow me to have 10 women," Neymar tweeted in Portuguese. "I am only laughing," he added on his Twitter page.

In other news, Neymar's team is waiting on the next round of games and hoping to perform well after their 1-0 loss to Real Sociedad. Barcelone's next match will be against Elche on Jan. 8 in the Copa del Rey Round of 16 game at the Camp Nou. Currently, they are still in second place with 38 points in Liga BBVA behind Real Madrid, which has 39 points.
