Chelsea owner Abramovich handed permission to open Neymar talks

Chelsea have been given the green light to hold talks with Santos star Neymar. The Sun says Chelsea have been given permission to speak to Neymar after offering £40million for the Brazilian superstar.

The 19-year-old forward, rated an even better prospect than Lionel Messi, is currently playing for Brazil in the Copa America.

He is thought to favour a move to Real Madrid, but a Chelsea source said: "We have been after Neymar for a long time and remain confident we can bring him to Stamford Bridge."
