Brazilian wonderkid Neymar has moved to quell the speculation about his future by confirming that he will be staying with Santos until at least the 2012 Olympic games.
The 19-year-old had been linked with a move to Real Madrid and there have reports claiming he has already agreed a deal with the Spanish side.
“It has already been decided,” he said at a news conference. “I won’t leave Santos in the next transfer window, I will stay until the Olympics. I have not reached a deal with any club.”
“I am happy here and I have no reason to leave. To be happy is what is important.”
Neymar has been linked with a whole host of European clubs who appear to have been tracking him for some time. The young Brazilian has never hidden his desire to one day play for Real Madrid although his short-term future looks to be at Santos.
