Santos coach Muricy Ramalho: We will not be able to hold on to Neymar for long

Santos coach Muricy Ramalho has admitted that his team faces an uphill struggle to keep Neymar at the Vila Belmiro, and believes that the 19-year-old will be sold during 2012.

The Brazilians have so far shown themselves reluctant to release their most precious gem, despite strong interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid and various reports of deals being struck for the coming year. Neymar has also stated his happiness in the club, while refusing to show a preference for either of the Spanish giants.

The story is too old to be commented.
