Brazil striker's agent says a move to the Spanish capital has everything a player could want, while claiming offers are not in short supply

Neymar's agent, Wagner Ribeiro, has stated that if the Santos striker was his son, he would want him to play for Real Madrid, as they are the best club in the world.

Chelsea are reportedly ready to return for the 19-year-old after failing in a bid to land his services last summer, but Ribeiro has revealed his opinion that the nine-time European Cup winners are a team with 'no equal'.

He told AS: "If he was my son, I would want him at Madrid. They are the best club in the world; they have no equal. It's the maximum a player could want. I know their president [Florentino Perez] well; he is a serious and passionate man."

On Saturday Neymar told the Spanish media he was happy to respect his deal at the Vila Belmiro club, and also his belief that he could win the Ballon d'Or as a Santos player.

However, Ribeiro reckons a move to Europe would benefit the player's development, and confirmed that there are a number of teams monitoring his situation in Brazil.

"Neymar is not the best in the world as he is not playing in Europe. But there is no lack of offers," added the agent.

Neymar will look to clinch the Copa Libertadores with Santos when they face Penarol in the final. The first leg is set to take place in Montevideo on Wednesday.
