Brazilian super agent Ribeiro: Real Madrid want Santos pair Tiago, Neymar

Brazilian super agent Wagner Ribeiro has revealed Real Madrid took a keen interest in both Santos starlets Tiago Luis Martins and Neymar at the recent Copinha in Sao Paulo.

Ribeiro, who is in Madrid for talks with Real regarding several subjects, including his client Robinho, told AS: "They liked Tiago a lot, though no concrete proposal has been made. Real also took a close look at Neymar, a lad of 15 years of age.

"Tiago played with Sao Paulo's top team in the Copinha, scored eight goals in four games. He has a deal that ends in February, but Santos want to register a new five-year contract the day after the current one expires.

"It's a legal problem which I am currently working on."
