Chelsea havebeen linked with a move for Neymar - a 17-year-old Brazilian strikerwho has been drawing comparisons to Robinho and even the great Pele.

FIFAagent Giuliano Bertolucci, who worked on Chelsea's signing of Brazildefender Alex from PSV Eindhoven five years ago, is said to haveapproached the striker's representative on behalf of the Blues.

Reportsin Brazil say the Barclays Premier League table-toppers would beprepared to offer about £13.5million for the Santos player, a figurewhich is about half of the player's release clause.

Neymar has been linked to Arsenal, Manchester United and City, as well as Real Madrid, AC Milan, Juventus and Barcelona.

Hisfather Neymar da Silva Santos admits that the player's agent WagnerRibeiro has been approached, but is reluctant to speak until a formaloffer is made.

Ribeiro sealed Robinho's move from Santos toReal Madrid in 2005 and his subsequent £34m British transfer switch toManchester City in September last year.

'Wagner has been sounded out, but there is nothing official,' said Neymar Sr.

'Therefore,we haven't moved any further because Wagner can only go to Santos whenthere is something official. For now, we're not dealing with any ofthat.

'Neymar is very young. He had a good year, but stillneeds to grow. I don't think that now is the time to leave. He needs toshow more for Santos and win titles here. Prepare better.'

Neymaris already in the Santos first team, scoring nine goals from 12 startsand 18 appearances from the bench in Brazil's Serie A this season.

He would not be able to register for a team outside Brazil until his18th birthday in February, but there is already plenty wanting to takehim out of South America.
