Chelsea linked Neymar: Timing not right for Santos exit
Linked with European giants Chelsea, Barcelona and PSG, Neymar has once more insisted that it is not yet the right time to leave Brazilian football for foreign shores.
Neymar, 20, was speaking after receiving his prize for finishing 2012 as the top-scorer in the Copa Libertadores with eight goals - a competition Santos look set to miss out on in 2013.
The club's non-qualification had prompted speculation that Neymar would hasten his departure for Europe, but the star of the Seleção once more pinpointed the 2014 World Cup as his ideal exit point.
"I will stay at Santos until 2014. I am happy at the club and this is the important thing," he told the amassed media ranks. "It's not the right time to leave. My aim is to win all the tournaments that I enter."
Santos have struggled in this year's Campeonato Brasileiro, but have done so largely in the absence of their main attacking threat - who has played just eleven times this league season.
Neymar refused to solely blame his absence for the poor results, adding: "I won't say it's because of this that Santos are are no longer in first or second, but I am sad to have played so little because I still haven't won a Brasileirão title. It's bad that I could not help my team."
Regarding the potential arrival of one of the club's former-stars in Diego or Robinho, Neymar was giving little away but insisted he would welcome any addition.
He finished: "The doors are open. It's the best thing to have reinforcements to help the team. If Muricy requires it, then the directors will work to buy these players.
"It's a shame that we are outside of the top-four, but we'll keep trying until the end."
