AGENT: Chelsea & United To Miss Out On £45m Striker
Brazilian starlet Neymar will have the option of either Real Madrid or Barcelona when he returns home from the Copa America after both clubs agreed a deal with his club.
The 19-year old is one of the world’s most sought-after players with Europe’s elite chasing his signature. Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City have all been heavily linked with wonderkid but it is Real Madrid and Barcelona who have made a firm move for him.
The player himself has recently committed his future to Santos claiming he “intends to continue at Santos” but with both Spanish giants meeting the asking price, the teen prodigy could still make a switch to La Liga.
The Brazilian teenager knows nothing of the recent speculation:
“I know nothing of what happens outside this hotel, nor have I talked with my agent or my father, who are doing the negotiating.”
His agent Ribeiro claims the Spanish clubs have made concrete offers for Neymar. He said:
“Santos reported no problem in Real Madrid and Barcelona paying (the asking price).
“Madrid want Neymar now, while Barcelona can wait another year.
“The two made their proposals, the numbers are good, but the decision is not mine, or the club’s. The decision is Neymar’s.
“We will not review the proposals until after the Copa America. It is not time for the kid to worry about this.
“He’s going to analyse everything after the competition and tell us what he wants.”
