The 20-year-old striker is among the most sought-after talents in world football, with top clubs jostling for position at the front of the transfer queue.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester United have all been mentioned as possible destinations for the Brazil international.

Neymar has, however, distanced himself from the intense speculation regarding his future on a regular basis.

He feels his on-going development would be better served in his homeland, where he is settled and comfortable.

There is no indication of him altering that stance any time soon, with the youngster prepared to keep Europe's heavyweights waiting on his signature.

"I'm happy here in Brazil, I'm happy at Santos," said Neymar.

"I have a dream of playing in Europe, but it's still not the right moment."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
