Real Madrid, Barcelona target Neymar rejects January exit from Santos
Neymar is staying at Santos for the remainder of the season - at the very least.
Santos' new offer will match Real's tabled contract - €5 million-a-year, plus advertising bonuses.
"For Neymar it has been difficult to make this decision," his adviser, Duda, told AS. "He was very excited to go to Europe, but he knows that if he arrives mid-season everything will be more difficult."
