Neymar: Weighing up offers from Barcelona and Real Madrid

The Brazilian side confirmed on Friday they had accepted two bids for the 21-year-old, widely thought to be from Barcelona and Real Madrid.

But after a meeting between club officials, Neymar and the player's father, no immediate decision was reached.

A statement from the club read: "In a meeting with representatives of the management committee of Santos FC, striker Neymar Jr was made aware of the offers received by the club and he will analyse them in the coming days before making a final decision."

Neymar admitted he was flattered by the interest in his services, but that he will not rush into making a decision on his future.

"This is an honour, the happiest moment in my life," Neymar told Globo Esporte. "I will now think about these two proposals.

"I will decide with my family. There's no hurry. Decision can be made in five minutes, half an hour, or three days."

Neymar's father, Neymar da Silva Santos, reiterated that his son will take his time over where to continue his career.

"No decision has been made. We will go home, sit down and talk," said Neymar's father.

"We can't decide in the heat of the moment. We'll see what Neymar wants."

Santos' vice-president Odilio Rodrigues claims the two offers are are both of similar value, but revealed Neymar has had a verbal agreement with Barcelona for some time about moving to Camp Nou.

"The offers are similar, but it's true Neymar already has a gentleman's agreement with Barcelona for a while," said Rodrigues.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
