Neymar's father has offered his son to a number of top European clubs - Report
Spanish newspaper Marca are reporting that the father of Neymar has been offering his son to a number of top European clubs in the past few weeks, despite an agreement supposedly existing between the player and Barcelona.
The Santos star’s father, Neymar da Silva, is believed to have met with officials from Chelsea to say that no agreement has been made with any club and that the forward could move to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2014, after the World Cup has been held in Brazil.
He is also said to have spoken with Manchester United, Manchester City and Real Madrid to relay the same information, despite all three clubs believing the Brazilian already has a deal with Barcelona.
And, according to Marca, he does. They state that Barcelona expect to sign Neymar either this summer or after the World Cup and that the deal has been agreed by both the player and Santos. The agreement is said to have a €40million get-out clause in case either party decides to pull out.
It is possible that another club could pay the get-out clause but that would take the total transfer fee up to around €80million, and it is highly unlikely any club would pay that for a player who is yet to prove himself outside of South American football.
