Barcelona winger Neymar explains why he turned down Real Madrid as a teenager in his new book.

Neymar's new book 'My name is Neymar' will be released next week.

"I'm no sell-out. Money helps, but it doesn't rule my life", the starlet is quoted as saying in the book 'My name is Neymar', which is being published by Ediciones B and will hit the shelves on 26th February.

The forward's father adds that his son had the opportunity to join Real Madrid in March 2006, but both felt the move was wrong.

"All the money in Madrid couldn't buy my son's happiness", he claims.
