According to the Reorts Emerging in the Brazilian media today, Chelsea have made a bid worth €20million to bring Santos wonderkid Neymar to Stamford Bridge.


May 02, 2010 - Sao Paulo, Brazil - SAO PAULO (BRAZIL), 02/05/10.- Santos player Neymar (R) fights for the ball with Al (L) of Santo Andre during their Sao Paulo's State Tournament final match played at Pacaembu stadium in Sao Paulo, Brazil on 02 May 2010.


Chelsea are reported to have made a bid worth €20million to bring Santos wonderkid Neymar to Stamford Bridge.

A Reputed newspaper is claiming today that Carlo Ancelotti's team have acted after an earlier bid of €15million was turned down by the Peixe. Neymar, 18, has also been a target for English rivals Manchester City and West Ham.

All bids for the forward however have so far been rejected by Santos President Luis Alvaro de Oliveira Ribeiro, who has stated in the past he would not accept a penny less than the player's buy out clause- a hefty €35million.

Sources close to the teenager on the other hand have stated their willingness to talk with foreign suitors.

Neymar's father Neymar da Silva had declared at the time of West Ham's rejected bid that "it would be a great opportunity for my son, with the possibility of playing for a major European club in such a short time, fighting for the biggest championships and becoming one of the best players in the world".
