Chelsea starlet target Neymar has moved to end speculation over his future, insisting he's happy at Santos and intends to stay with the club.
The Brazilian international recently penned a new deal at the Vila Belmiro, and is contracted to remain with the Peixe until 2014.
That hasn't stopped constant transfer speculation surrounding the future of the 19-year-old, with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City all said to be keen on the player at some stage in the last couple of months.
However, Neymar has dealt a blow to all suitors, including Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas, by insisting he wishes to spend the next few years in his homeland.
"I do not plan to go now, I have many things to do in Santos," Neymar told a group of reporters in Montevideo, Uruguay.
"I have a contract until 2014 and I intend to stay until 2014. Everyone knows it's a dream to go play in Europe (...) I don't know whether it will be in 2014 or later."
Neymar was collecting an award from newspaper El Pais, who rated the teenager as the best player in the Americas.
Should he remain at Santos until the end of his contract, the forward would be based in Brazil until the 2014 World Cup, a potential bonus for manager Mano Menezes.
