Agent reveals Chelsea deal for Brazilian

    Neymar burst onto the Brazilian scene as a teenager and was highly sought after as he impressed at Santos. A year after representing Brazil at the 2012 Olympics he completed a controversial move to Barca. But his former agent Wagner Ribeiro told Brazilian media outlet UOL Esporte that both Real and Chelsea had bid for the striker, and that a switch to the Bernabeu was the most obvious choice, reports Express.

    Wagner Ribeiro confessed in an interview with Brazilian media UOL that his priority was for Neymar to move to Real Madrid. The controversial former agent of the Barcelona star said that Los Blancos' offer was "economically better" but the player "ended up signing for the team of his heart."

"I took offers to Santos from Chelsea and Real Madrid. Barcelona's was directly from his father. I wanted him to go to Madrid, I have always said that.

"It was a better offer financially for Santos and even for the player. But he decided to go to Barcelona because it was the team of his heart."
