Abramovich brings forward Chelsea plans for Neymar

Chelsea are intensifying their pursuit of Santos whiz Neymar.

The Telegraph says Chelsea have stepped up their interest in Brazil international Neymar, who they came close to signing last year only for the striker to agree a new contract at his club, Santos.

It had been thought that Neymar would remain at Santos for one more year but it is now understood that Chelsea might make their move for the 19 year-old, who is involved in the forthcoming Brazilian cup final, after the Copa America.

He is in the Brazil squad for the tournament.
