Chelsea to sign Brazilian wonderkid Neymar

Posted on | August 12, 2010 | No Comments

Neymar was one of Chelsea‘s main objectives this summer but Santos rejected every approach from the Premier League giants.

Neymar performances of this year, when he scored 13 goals in 40 appearances for Santos, have not gone unnoticed by Mano Menezes who rewarded him with first call-up to the Brazil senior squad.

The 18 year old forward played against SUA in a friendly game on 10 August when he had a very appreciated performance. Neymar managed to score the first goal of the game and was voted as Man of the Match by several football sites.

This goal and fear of losing him to other teams determined Chelsea to raise the bid to €25 millions for the player, a sum that was accepted by Santos.

Neymar is one of the Brazilian wonderkids and is already compared with Pele.
