Unimpressed Real Madrid president Florentino: Neymar not worth €15M

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez was left non-plussed by Neymar's Copa America debut on the weekend.

The Santos star failed to catch fire in Brazil's drab draw with Venezuela.

El Mundo Deportivo says Florentino was left disappointed by Neymar's performance - and with Santos demanding Real pay his €45 million buyout clause, the president remarked to confidants: "Bah, this guy (Neymar) is not worth €15 million!"

Santos president Luis Álvaro de Oliveira revealed yesterday that Florentino had spoken to him about Neymar's situation.

"Five presidents have asked me for Neymar, but when the 2014 World Cup comes round, he will still be here," said Oliveira.
