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.

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.
