Neymar hopes for Chelsea bid

Brazilian starlet Neymar has urged Chelsea to renew their transfer interest as he attempts to secure a "dream" move to Europe.

• Hoddle urges Chelsea to sign Sneijder
• Sturridge: I won't warm bench

Neymar, 19, snubbed a move to Chelsea last season as he preferred to continue his development with Santos, but his progression in his homeland has been rapid and the forward is now ready to move abroad.

The Brazil youngster broke into the senior national team under manager Mano Menezes in August 2010 and three goals in three games has put some of Europe's biggest clubs on alert - including Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus.

But Neymar revealed that it is Chelsea's interest that excites him. Having spoken to Brazil team-mates David Luiz and Ramires, who both play at Stamford Bridge, he is eager for the Blues to make another transfer bid.

"I was very happy about Chelsea's interest because it is a club which every player would like to play for, but at that moment the right decision was to stay at Santos," Neymar told the Daily Telegraph.

"To play in Europe is my dream. I was very proud of Chelsea's interest and I hope to keep playing well so that this proposal can happen again.

"I know about players in England - Drogba, Lampard, Gerrard - these are very good players. I have spoken to Ramires and David Luiz and they say England is a very good country and London is a beautiful place to live."

However, the talented teenager is keen not to limit his options and has also hinted that the time may be right to try his luck at the newly-crowned Premier League champions.

"I know about these teams; Chelsea, Manchester - to play for them are the dreams of all players," Neymar said.

There is a €45 million buy-out clause in his contract but a switch to England would be complicated by the fact that Santos only own 60% of his rights. Third-party ownership is banned in England, so a suitor would have to negotiate with a number of parties.
