19 year old Brazilian whizz-kid Neymar has ended speculation of a move to European giants Real Madrid or Barcelona by declaring his intentions to stay at Santos until at least 2014 the year his native country host the World Cup.
Neymar has been constantly linked with a mega move to a top european club but has finally ended this speculation saying.
“No-one know what might happen tomorrow, and this moment in my life is marvellous,” Neymar said with a wide grin.
“It’s a choice that wasn’t very difficult because I’m happy here, I play for marvellous fans… and for the joy of staying in my Brazil, there is no better country.
“I hope to continue writing history,” added Neymar, father of a three-month old baby and among the 23 players vying for the title of FIFA World Player of the Year.
