Neymar’s Transfer Speculation Continues As Denials Surface

The future of Santos starlet Neymar will certainly be all over the headlines this summer as the Brazilian’s impending move to Europe looks set to become a reality. Marca reported yesterday that Neymar and Barcelona had agreed terms and the Brazilian attacker was set to join the Catalan giants in July.

That story has now changed, however, as Neymar has taken to the press himself to assure Santos fans and the world that nothing has been agreed.

“The truth is that I haven’t met Raul Sanheli, I was totally focused in the final of the Paulista Championship,” Neymar said.

“I have a full agenda of matches to play so I am far away from it all. My father is in charge of negotiations.

“I am very happy with what is happening in my life. My future? I think that everything is going to be right.”

Neymar’s contract finishes with Santos in 2014, but there has been much speculation about a move away from Brazil and to Europe for the highly sought after attacker. While many think its a must for Neymar to leave now, some people think leaving now, just before the World Cup, could actually be less beneficial for him. If he fails to adapt in Europe, it could cost himself and Brazil greatly as they look to win the coveted trophy in their own country.

Regardless of what has happened behind closed doors, Neymar isn’t happy with the treatment he has received since being linked to a move away from Santos.

“There are always two ways of looking at a situation. When I renewed my contract on 2011, everyone was delighted. I signed until 2014, but now we are near the end of that I am being criticized by people saying I had thought about this since I first signed.

“We are being accused of being bad people, this is not fair. We are going to do my departure in the best possible way.”

Do you think Neymar should wait till after the World Cup before he leaves? Or do you think he should get out of Brazil this summer so to help boost his career?
