Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has made a new pitch to Santos star Neymar.Barcelona are regarded as favourites for the Brazil international, with talk of a pre-contract agreement already secure.

But El Mundo Deportivo says Perez is refusing to give up and actually met with Neymar in Switzerland during the Ballon d'Or gala.

It's understood the pair spent some time together without any hangers on - though the result of their conversation is yet to emerge.
