Chelsea concede Neymar battle to Real Madrid boss Mourinho

Chelsea are ready to concede defeat to Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid in the battle for Neymar.

The Sun says Mourinho is ready to pay the £40million demanded by Brazil side Santos for their strike star, 19.

Chelsea's billionaire owner Roman Abramovich will not budge above £30m and a club source admitted: "Jose is ready to pay the asking price but Abramovich thinks £30m is a fair price for someone who's only 19 and has had injury problems.

"So it looks like Mourinho has got his man."
