Agent says Santos fans may drive Neymar into Chelsea arms

The agent of Neymar has hit out at Santos fans who have attacked both the player and his father over a proposed move to Chelsea.

Wagner Ribeiro admits the reaction from Santos fans to the Chelsea offer could sway Neymar's thinking.

He explained: "I am very offended by the media and fans. They're not seeing the professional side of those who are working on this and seeing the interests of the player.

"Neymar and father have personality, they know what they want and they will decide. The father has been a player and did not realize all his dreams. By playing in Europe he cannot only become the world's best, but also plays with the best in the world."
