TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea To Battle City For Wonderkid

By on June 29, 2011

Manchester City have reportedly joined the race to sign Brazilian wonderkid Neymar, leaving Chelsea battling it out with four other clubs for his signature.

Is was reported that Real Madrid had won the race to sign the 19-year old, but Santos president Luis Ribeiro suggests there are five clubs still chasing the striker.

The clubs are reportedly Chelsea, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala. Ribeiro said:

“We don’t want to sell the player but there is a release clause in his contract that can be paid.

“Five European clubs have offered to match the clause.

“I cannot name them because there is an agreement between Santos and the clubs but they are the most important clubs in Europe.

“They have asked to speak to the player and obviously we’ve allowed them to.

“The clubs have behaved ethically. They sought out Santos first and were willing to pay the clause.

“With this ethical approach, they can talk to anyone – with Neymar’s father, with his agent Wagner Ribeiro, and with the representatives of Neymar.”

    Ernest, you plainly have no idea, maybe go back to licking that window and think some more. I have complete faith in AVB, he will assess and see where competition required and deadwood to be chopped. I liked what he said about Terry, that ‘if he plays’ he will be captain, tells me that everyone will need to earn the right to play, no automatic starts and will do wonders for team and individual motivation. Come on the Blues!
