To be fair if we offered 20 mil it doesn't matter how much they don't want to open negotiations because for 28.4 we'll activate his release clause and they'll have no choice in the matter.

I feel really good. Yes the bid was rejected but at least we know we are in the market for a striker and we are willing to spend big, not only that but we are looking at the right kind of players, young, fast with potential.

"Chelsea are reported to have made a bid worth €20million to bring Santos wonderkid Neymar to Stamford Bridge.Yesterday it was claimed that the Blues were close to producing an offer, and according to Brazilian sources today this plan was put into action.

Globoesporte claim that Carlo Ancelotti's team have acted after an earlier bid of €15million was turned down by the Peixe. Neymar, 18, has also been a target for English rivals Manchester City and West Ham. All bids for the forward however have so far been rejected by Santos President Luis Alvaro de Oliveira Ribeiro, who has stated in the past he would not accept a penny less than the player's buy out clause- a hefty €35million.Sources close to the teenager on the other hand have stated their willingness to talk with foreign suitors.

Neymar's father Neymar da Silva had declared at the time of West Ham's rejected bid that "it would be a great opportunity for my son, with the possibility of playing for a major European club in such a short time, fighting for the biggest championships and becoming one of the best players in the world".

Goal.com but fairly encouraging.

In the right direction for the club, finally, but at least they are getting there.

There being: SIGNING PLAYERS INSTEAD OF LETTING THEM GO!

well this is a big gamble on a player that is clearly underweight but a good talent none the less. I think with sturridge and borini we have 2 very good young striker's i would rather we sign a young target man !

The good news is that we tried to sign a talent like Neymar.I was worried that our next transfer would be someone like Benayoun.

The bad news is that our bid got rejected.Surely the club can offer more,hope they will.

i think we switched our target from Aguero to Neymar bcoz of Atleti's demand of more than 40m... So i doubt if we will go again with a higher bid. But one good news is watever it is, it cant be more tham 28m as thats his release caluse..But still that wd be a sizeable fee for a future prospect !!! Dout if the board wud be ready to tk such a risk...

this would be a quality acquisition, imagine him becoming a ronaldo type figure.

..& let's not forget, Kalou's still only 24!

yes but kalou shouldnt be anywhere near a top 4 team, never mind the champions.

and besides he's not an attacker, he's whatever he can be to start a game. rolleyes.gif

Neymar is a great great talent. At only 18 its incredible how good he is, but..

He is a real lightweight and he would really need to bulk up for PL football. And most importantly he will probably get tired of getting kicked around all the time, like speedy ballwizards (Robben, Robinho and even Ronaldo said it).

They should rather go for Ganso, also a Santos player. Fantastic 'number 10'.

Isn't that what they said about Ronaldo? He was to weak for the PL, he did fine.

<br  /><br  /><br  /><br /><br />Yeah he ended up great. Why? Because he bulked up, thats what Neymar will have to do like i said third sentence. And he worked hard on his condition and stamina. Malouda did the same, remember he was a lot weaker when he first joined. Not all players have that will to work extremely to succeed. There are a lot more failure stories than success stories when it comes to those kind of players in the PL. Most would rather go to the Spanish League, where they would have to work a lot less on their physique. And I was more worried about ending up unhappy of being kicked around all time (Robben, Robinho, Ronaldo are a few examples).<br /><br />I'm not saying he wont succeed but for that amount of money you have to keep the big risk in mind.

i have/had my reservations...his built that has already been mentioned is one..but that wasn`t my biggest,with the professional staff we have they will know how to help him bulk up and at 18 he obviously isn`t fully grown yet...

up until today i thought of him as a great prospect,which he is but i was concerned because the footage i have seen of him as i had seen him as being a purely left footed player..(how many left footed players have we already on the books ?..about 10 i think..)... since the news came out that we have made a bid on him ,i have dug up all the footage i can find on him tho ,and what i see is although his left foot seems to be his strongest he is more than adequate on his right foot too..he is very much a two footed player..who could play on the right side of a front 3 if they decide to play Kakuta on the left side...i think i would prefer Lukaku than him..as i`m convinced he has the physical tools aswell as the skill set to succeed but signing him or atleast signing him and getting him to join us to play this year seems a non-starter so we have to wait on him (would love to sign him now and loan him straight back ) however if Neymar could bulk up and if he has the mental capacity for the PL..then he would be huge for us..and could possibly take Zola title as best player ever....once Drogba & Anelka have gone a front 3 of Kakuta,Lukaku & Neymar (with Sturridge,Borini & Mitrovic in the rotation) on song, would be unplayable..each player would be too much for just one defender so what would teams do..play with a 6 defenders? and that`s not including our midfield..attacking fullbacks etc..

it`s always a gamble spending big bucks on teenagers..but the rewards could be priceless.

not sure if i would make the deal that is needed to get him..but if they pull it off, i will get behind it wholeheartedly and hope for the best...i would also give him atleast 2 years to evolve into a starter before i would brandish him a flop,if he struggles at first to adapt like he may very well do.
