Neymar: Happy at Santos but open to future move

Neymar: Happy at Santos but open to future move

The highly-rated 21-year-old is one of football's hottest properties and continues to be linked with a switch to some of Europe's biggest clubs, including Barca, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Bayern Munich.

Rumours he could make the move to Camp Nou were fuelled last month when full-back Dani Alves, an international team-mate of Neymar, urged the striker to join the Catalan giants.

But Santos vice-president Odilio Rodrigues denied such speculation and confirmed the club had opened talks over a new contract for the youngster.

Neymar says he is content at the Brazilian side but maintains he will not rule out a move when he feels the time is right.

He told Placar: "I've said before, if I feel this is the right moment to leave, then why not? They say that I'll leave Santos, that I won't, but I have to stay calm.

"People make many false stories but I'm happy at Santos, trying to help my team the best way I can. I hope to win games again.

"(Comments that I'll leave now) are made by people that don't know about my life. If I feel it's time to leave, I'll leave. But this is something I'll decide, not somebody else. I'm doing well and happy at Santos."

He added of the Barcelona speculation: "There is no contract (with Barcelona), that's not true.

"Daniel Alves is a big friend but if I say (Lionel) Messi will join Santos, will you believe it? I thank Daniel Alves for what he said but I'm happy here."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
