BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Barcelona says that Brazil striker Neymar has developed anemia, but that it won't stop his preseason training with the Spanish champion.

Anemia is a lower than normal count of red blood cells that causes fatigue or weakness.

The team says that ``due to an operation on his tonsils this summer the player is suffering a case of anemia that is being treated and won't impede him from training with normality with the rest of his teammates.''

Neymar is currently with Barcelona in Israel on a ``Peace Tour'' of the Middle East. Barcelona opens the Spanish league against Levante on Aug. 18.

The 21-year-old Neymar joined Barcelona from Brazilian club Santos this offseason.
