Neymar: Would not leave Santos for nothing

The 20-year-old international is out of contract with Santos after next year's World Cup finals in Brazil.

Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Manchester City are amongst the clutch of European clubs chasing him, and he is suggesting a deal could be agreed before the finals.

"With everything the club has done for me and my family, leaving for free is not an option", Neymar said.

"But it's something very distant and we still have to talk. First, I'll try to win some titles and then I'll think about it. I don't know if I'll be leaving for free. It depends on the club and if they want to let me go for nothing."

In addition, his agent, Wagner Ribeiro said Santos would be rewarded when a transfer appears.

"Neymar's family are very grateful to Santos, the club that built him as a player and projected him to world fame," said Ribeiro.

"Certainly at the end of his contract they will study the best way for him to continue in Brazil or go to Europe with Santos benefiting from it somehow."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
