Neymar Snr: Barca, Madrid contact

Neymar Snr has confirmed that both Barcelona and Real Madrid have held initial talks with him over a proposed move for his son.

Barcelona are reported as in Brazil, via director Raul Senllehi, to talk with Santos over closing out negotiations before the Confederations Cup.

Delcir Sonda, head of the DIS investment group that part own the player has been quoted as saying that the player’s future is seemingly destined for the Camp Nou.

However, Neymar Snr, who also as his son’s agent is seen as looking to delay those talks until after this summer’s international tournament, has suggested that reported competition from Real Madrid still exists.

 “I have spoken with both clubs, but nothing is confirmed. Neymar is focusing on the Campeonato Paulista Final [this weekend],” briefly commented Neymar Snr to reporters, echoing a message from earlier in the week.
