This comes after yet more feverish speculation in recent weeks with various reports claiming that he had already agreed a pre-contract with Barcelona, and then more sources suggesting this had been bought out by Real Madrid.

Further reports in Spain claim that Neymar has told team-mates he will move to Europe this summer, whilst it is being reported in Brazil that Santos are now ready to sell - but the player has again stressed that he is not looking to leave.

Speaking to French newspaper Le Monde, he said: "I won't leave Santos before the 2014 World Cup in Brazil is over.

"I haven't decided my destination in Europe, I have many options but I won't talk about this."
