The story up till now was that REAL MADRID had secured Neymar for next year for 56M€. In fact there was an agreement signed with penalty clause. However, news from Brazil is that Neymar ( via his Father ) has now unilaterally broken that agreement & has renewed with Santos. That is, the much written, silence pact between all parties, has in fact turned into a "back-stabbing" pact with a new shadow in play.
The story from online Spanish paper "elconfidencial" via its journalist José Felix Diaz is that Neymar has sacked his representative Wagner Ribiero who was the "Real Madrid" contact & brought onboard Andre Curi a "FC Barcelona" man: here is the always suspected shadow.
According to sources, Neymar - via his Father - has came to an agreement ( which type no one knows) to sign with FC BARCELONA in 2014. FC Barcelona President Sandro Rosell has been dazzled by "the kid" & sees the $$$$ potential in marketing & has made Neymar a personal objective. This goes against the idea of his current Coach Guardiola who does not see the Brazilian as "Barça stuff", too cocky & too extravegent. However, Rosell is betting on the idea that Guardiola will leave Barça before 2014 thus that problem will disappear.
Santos & FC Barcelona Presidents are soon to meet in Tokyo for the FIFA World Clubs Championships & many believe both will iron out the fine line details.
So there you have it, another chapter to keep this series on course. Is it all part of the initial Real Madrid - Neymar - Santos agreement to make us all believe there is not agreement? Has FC Barcelona taken away Neymar from Real Madrid? What will Guardiola say about it all as he does not want the player? Will Mourinho & Real Madrid tell the player to take a hike? While Neymar "fizz" out like Robihno? Is this all just hype? Will Real Madrid go "to War" with Barça? Will Real Madrid exercise that agreement penalty clause?
Right now who cares , but do stay tuned. Things are just now getting exciting.
