Brazilian starlet Neymar has revealed that Barcelona and Real Madrid have expressed interest in his signature, with Chelsea also fighting to sign the youngster who has been touted as a future European superstar.

"Real Madrid and Barcelona have come calling for me. Both clubs want me," Neymar said.

"I can confirm it, but I have not reached an agreement with any of them.


"The interest from Spain's big two means that my self-esteem is very high because I am being followed by two big clubs like these."

Chelsea have long been connected to Neymar, from when Carlo Ancelotti was in charge until just yesterday when David Luiz said he would love for his Brazilian teammate to make the move to Stamford Bridge.

Manchester City are also said to be interested in the starlet, but Chelsea were thought to be front runners, with the Blues able to boast a host of Brazilian players who could help Neymar settle into English life easily and quickly.

Neymar featured for Brazil in their 1-0 defeat of Ghana on Monday night at Craven Cottage, and Chelsea scouts were no doubt alerted to his continued good form.

The striker won't come cheap though, with Barcelona already reportedly offering €45 million for his signature, according to ESPN Soccernet.
