Neymar open to offers from Chelsea
Brazilian sensation Neymar has indicated that he would be willing to listen to the offers of potential suitors despite current club Santos’ intention to retain the forward until after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Indeed, Neymar who is reportedly the target of Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid, is reported by the Sun to be willing to listen to any offers from England and particularly Chelsea, where international compatriot Oscar is said to be attempting to persuade him to make the move to Stamford Bridge.
“Oscar messages me to tell me what a great club Chelsea is and what a great city London is,” said Oscar. “He and Dani [Alvez of Barcelona] are very good salesman for their clubs.”
“When the time is right I will listen to the right offers that my agent has for me,” continued Neymar. “It is very simple - if Barcelona are interested you listen, if Real Madrid are interested you listen, if Chelsea are interested you listen. There are maybe five clubs in the world that you know you must at least listen to.”
After enjoying three prolific seasons with Brazilian club Santos, Neymar has recently made progress on the international stage and is the current poster-boy for the Brazilian national team ahead of the World Cup, scoring 13 times in 23 appearances for Brazil while lighting up the London 2012 Olympics, scoring three goals as his country won the Silver medal.
