Neymar plans to stay at Santos until 2014, says father

The Brazil starlet has long been linked with a move to Barcelona but his dad insists he has yet to be informed by the Brasileiro side if they intend to sell this summer

The father of Santos starlet Neymar has once more insisted his son plans remain in Brazil until the summer of 2014.

Rumours linking the 21-year-old with a move to Barcelona in the coming months have gathered pace of late, with Tito Vilanova confirming discussions have taken place between representatives of the two clubs.

However, the player’s father has stressed that his son intends to see out his contract with the Brasileiro outfit, claiming that both Barca and Real Madrid have plans in place to make a move for the youngster’s signature next year.

“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.”
