Where will Neymar end up

Friday, July 1, 2011

As most of you know, Brazilian wonderkid Neymar is currently one of the hottest properties in the World in terms of football. He is currently plying his trade with Santos is the Brazilian league, but several clubs across Europe have signalled their intent to sign the 19 year old.

Apparently, Chelsea are the extremely keen to win Neymar's signature, having had a bid rejected last year and another bid rejected in this summers current transfer market. Neymar has a buy-out clause of £40 million on his contract, and even though Chelsea are thought to have met that clause, Santos remain confident he will not be leaving the club.

"In light of continuous speculation in the national and international press about the future of our player, I feel obliged to communicate the departure of Neymar is non-negotiable.''

Neymar himself has not said much on the case, but I'm sure if Chelsea/Barcelona/Real Madrid came knocking with a lucrative contract offer, he would not refuse. Admittedly I have not seen much of Neymar, apart from when he plays with Brazil. However, when I have seen him play, he does look like a very good prospect. One thing which might work against him, particularly in the Premier League, is a lack of strength. He would certainly have to bulk up to deal with the hustle and bustle of the Premier League.
