Neymar To Stay At Santos?

Neymar's father has revealed that the player intends to honour his contract by staying with Santos until the summer of 2014.

The Brazilian starlet has previously said that he does not intend to move until after the World Cup in Brazil, and his father has backed up those statements.

Still, it hasn't stopped rumours from suggesting that both Barcelona and Real Madrid are ready to step up their interest in the player.

His father says that the two clubs are waiting on the player and they are currently trying different things to see where he would fit in best.

"Our position is to stay until the end of contract," he told Radio Bandeirantes. "And we have not heard that Santos are in negotiations to sell Neymar.

“If Santos want then I will talk with my son to see if he really wants to go. We made some plans for Neymar to stay here until 2014. If these change we must be told beforehand.

"Barcelona are waiting for Neymar but for 2014. A project is in place to see how he will fit there. They put people next to Neymar to see how he would work. And Real Madrid do the same thing in the same way."
