Chelsea’s hopes of signing Brazilian sensation Neymar appeared to be dealt a blow today following claims by an agent with close links to Real Madrid that the teenager was near to joining the Spaniards.

It was reported that Ernesto Bronzetti, an Italian agent with close links to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, had claimed that a deal worth in excess of £35 million was “practically done”, with a five-year contract ready to be penned.

Bronzetti told SportYou: “I was called by an Italian television station [Sport Mediaset] and they asked me. I told them the only thing I knew was what I had seen on a website, that it was almost done.”

The teenager has been a long-time target for Chelsea and has previously expressed his desire to move to London, but it now appears that a move to Spain is on the cards, though he could be loaned back to Santos.
