Neymar to decide between Barca and Real Madrid

What seemed to be the last night of the never-ending saga surrounding Neymar ended up being prolonged even more. The immediate future of the player is still undecided although one thing we know for certain is that the young Brazilian will be playing in the Spanish league next season says Spanish sports paper Marca.

That’s what has been made clear from a statement by his club, Santos. The Sao Paulo club has officially announced that there are two offers on the table by two Spanish teams (Barcelona and Real Madrid) and that they like both. Therefore, the club has announced that it accepts the offers for the player and has asked Neymar to decide between the two in order to finalize the transfer operation.

Although Santos has not specifically named any of the two clubs mentioned above, it is rumored that FC Barcelona has made an offer for the Brazilian. That was why Raul Sanllehí has been in Brazil for more than a week. In fact, he met with Santos in the club’s facilities in Vila Belmiro for hours without reaching an agreement.

The other offer would be Real Madrid, according to suggestions by the Brazillian local media and press. According to these same sources, Real Madrid are prepared to table a much more substantial offer than Barca’s. There is talk of a proposal from Barca of around 28M Euros to Santos and annual salary of 7M Euros for Neymar against a Real Madrid offer of 35M Euros to Santos and a yearly salary of 11M euros to the player.

After the statement from Santos, the player and his father showed up at the club’s offices to evaluate both offers. It seems likely that there could be a response this morning, but it didn’t happen. Upon leaving the meeting, the player himself admitted that it was “the happiest day” of his life and he needed to think about which of the two teams he will choose.

“It is an honour and is the happiest day of my life. I’ll think about these two proposals and I will decide with my family. I ‘m in no hurry. My decision can be made in five minutes, half hour or three days,” said Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior.

Neymar’s father also spoke in a similar vein after the meeting. “We cannot make any rash decisions. We are going home and we’ll see what Neymar wants, ” he concluded.
