Santos striker Neymar, who has been linked with a number of clubs from across Europe, has been backed to join Real Madrid.

Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester City and ambitious Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala are all believed to be keen on signing the 19-year-old, who is widely expected to be on the move next year.

Reports during the summer had suggested that Real Madrid had offered Neymar a five-year deal to move to the Bernabeu.

And although all parties involved insist a deal has not been agreed, bookmakers Sportingbet make Jose Mourinho's side the huge odds-on favourites to sign Neymar when he eventually leaves Santos.

Santos coach Muricy Ramalho last month admitted that the brilliant Brazil international is likely to leave South America next year as clubs from across Europe look to sign him.

AC Milan, Inter and Juventus are also believed to be keen on the teenager, who has a £40million release clause in his contract.

The bookies make Spanish champions Barca second favourites to be Neymar's next club, ahead of Chelsea, Anzhi and Man City.

Reports late last month had suggested City boss Roberto Mancini had sent coach Attilio Lombardo out to Brazil to watch the young forward in action recently.

Despite the interest from European clubs, Corinthians president Andres Sanchez recently claimed his side are also in a position to make an offer for the player.
