Barcelona have secret first option on Neymar
The article reports that Barcelona have paid a fee of €10 million in order to have first-option on the player when Santos wish to sell. The deal was agreed recently and included Neymar's new contract rise.
Should an offer come in from another suitor, Santos would have to cough up €20 million to Barcelona to backtrack on the arrangement.
Barcelona President Sandro Rossell, a close friend of Santos President Luis Alvaro Ribeiro, has been in Brazil to talk to the youngster and has seemingly persuaded the youngster to turn his back on an agreement with Real Madrid.
