Chelsea chasing Brazilian wonderkid

Thursday, August 12, 2010

Premier League champions Chelsea are apparently hot on the heels of Brazilian wonder kid Neymar, who currently plays for Santos. He is the second player from Brazil whom has been linked with Chelsea, along with Ramires. They will have to shell out in excess of £20 million for Neymar's signature.

''Santos FC recieved an official offer from Chelsea FC of England for the economic rights to the striker Neymar.''

Neymar has been closely monitored by several of Europe's top clubs, including Real Madrid, Barcelona, Arsenal, Inter Milan and of course Chelsea. He is very highly rated and big things are expected of him. He is probably too young to make it into the Chelsea starting 11, at only 18 he is definitely one for the future.

I've kept an eye on Neymar after seeing him on YouTube a couple of years ago. He reminds me of Robinho, small, fast and skill-full. I have no doubt he will someday play in Europe but whether he will be a success remains to be seen.
