Chelsea FC, FC Barcelona target Neymar insists he won't leave Santos this year

Neymar, who has been linked with the likes of Barcelona, Chelsea and Real Madrid, has once again stated that he won't consider a move away from Santos and South America until after the 2014 World Cup.

Neymar is arguably the most sought after player in world football today and has been linked with a number of clubs in recent months, with Bayern Munich, Juventus, Manchester City, rivals Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain all believed to be showing interest in the 21-year-old.

Barcelona are widely seen as favourites to sign the £50million-rated Brazilian, who is out of contract in July 2014, and Santos vice-president Odilio Rodriguez recently revealed that the forward had informed his employers that he will not sign an extension at the club.

Barca are believed to be preparing to launch a bid for Neymar when the transfer window reopens, but he insists he will not move to Europe this summer.

Speaking to French newspaper Le Monde, he said: "I won't leave Santos before the 2014 World Cup in Brazil is over.

"I haven't decided my destination in Europe, I have many options but I won't talk about this."
