Santos vice-president: Neymar keen on Barcelona move

Santos vice-president: Neymar keen on Barcelona move

Santos vice-president Odilio Rodrigues has no doubts about Neymar future point of destination, which is, yes, Barcelona, the club with which he has been linked several years.

Wonderkid Neymar has been the subject of intense transfer speculation for several years, since coming through the ranks of Brazilian side and establishing himself as indispensable member of the first team. Neymar has been attracting the interest from top European clubs including Man City, Chelsea and Real Madrid, however Odilio Rodrigues is confident a switch to Barcelona is player’s choice.

He said: “Neymar has told us he wants to sign for Barcelona. There are other proposals but he has preferences for Barca. There is no official Madrid proposal for Neymar but we know that this offer will come. We held conversations in Spain with the Barca board of directors and there are on-going talks but nothing has been decided.

“But the negotiations need to continue because the first bid we were offered was not enough. We know that Madrid had a bid and will be presenting it soon, but I haven’t talked to (club president) Florentino Perez. We know that the athlete’s opinion is important. What we have to do is to find a way to unify the best offer with the player’s interest,” he added.
