Santos president: Fresh Barcelona offer for Neymar rejected

The Blaugrana had a second bid rejected for the Brazil international and Odilio Rodrigues says that the attacker will remain at the club unless the transfer fee is upped
Barcelona has had a second bid for Neymar rejected by Santos, according to the Brazilian club's vice president Odilio Rodrigues.

The Blaugrana have been the most active in their interest towards the Brazil international and, on Wednesday, held showdown talks with Santos and offered a 20 million Euro fee to the South American side as part of the deal.

With archrival Real Madrid increasing the intensity of its pursuit of the forward, Barca's second bid shows itsdesire to finalize a deal but Rodrigues insists that the South American side will not be forced into a sale for a lower figure than it would like.
