Neymar’s agent says the Brazil wonderkid will not be sold for less than £41million – and could go to Real Madrid. The 19-year-old is widely regarded as the best young player in the world, and Santos have already fended off bids of around £30million to keep him.
Chelsea and Barcelona have been tracking Neymar for a number of years, but it appears Spanish giants Real are leading the race for his signature.
The teenager’s agent, Wagner Ribeiro, has revealed a move to the Bernabeu is not out of the question.
He told Spanish newspaper Marca:
“What if it means going to sign for Madrid? In football anything is possible.”
Ribeiro claims Santos spurned a £32m offer for Neymar from Chelsea last summer, and insists the youngster’s price tag is at least £41m.
He said in The Sun:
“Last year Santos received an offer of £32m from Chelsea and it was rejected. Now he would not leave for less than £41m. Neymar is like Messi. Soon he will be the best in the world because he is a player unlike any other. He is just 19 but all the big clubs are following him.”
