Chelsea target Neymar keen to stay with Santos

Comments made by Neymar's agent suggests that the Brazilian whizkid will not be departing Santos in the near future.

The 19-year old striker has long been linked with Chelsea and a summer transfer has been heavily mooted but agent Wagner Riberio insists that his client will not be moving from his homeland anytime soon.

"This is all speculation from Britain. It is absurd. He does not want to, and will not, leave Santos. He is happy and focused on the Copa Libertadores," he said.

"Of course he will arouse interest, that is just natural because of his performances on the field - but I guarantee you there is no proposal for him.

"You have to pay £40m for him, yet Santos have to want to sell and now Santos do not want to."
