Neymar Signs New Santos Contract

Teenage prodigy Neymar will stay in Santos and ignore a multi-million pound move to Chelsea, after the player and his representatives agreed a lucrative new contract with the Sao Paulo club.

Globoesporte report that the deal was confirmed on Thursday in a meeting held at the club headquarters, with Neymar, agent Wagner Ribeiro and the Santos president Luis Alvaro Oliveira the only parties present. There the 18-year-old signed the new deal but details have yet to be announced. The salary is believed to be similar to the figure offered by Chelsea in their earlier negotiations.

The story is too old to be commented.

Only a few players around would turn down this offer, and keep playing in a really poor club at a medium/low Brazilian level. I think its cool that he stays!
