CHELSEA, BARCA FIGHT FOR NEYMAR!
Posted: Aug 04, 2012
Chelsea will have to battle Spanish giants Barcelona if they are to stand a chance of landing Brazilian sensation Neymar, according to the Daily Express.
The 19-year-old has become one of the most sought-after players in world football after breaking into the Santos side in 2009 and has been in sensational form for his country at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The Express claim that Chelsea will go head-to-head with La Liga giants Barcelona for the Brazilian ace, who has been mulling over whether to move to Europe or remain in Brazil for the time being.
Barca vice-president Jose Maria Bartomeu has confirmed the clubs intention to try and lure Neymar to the Nou Camp this summer after the Olympics.
Speculation has been rife in Spain that Neymar will end up in Catalonia when he does decide to leave him homeland, and it seems Barca would like the deal to happen sooner rather than later.
But the Express claim Chelsea won’t give up without a fight and are willing to do all they can to bring the Brazilian striker to Stamford Bridge, while Real Madrid are also keeping tabs on the players situation.
