The father of Santos ace Neymar has voiced his opinion that Real Madrid would be the best option for the Brazil international if he decides to leave his current club.

They 19-year-old is continually being linked with the Santiago Bernabeu club, but Santos have no intention of cashing in on Neymar until after the Club World Cup in December.

The forward has also been linked with teams such as Barcelona, Chelsea and Juventus, but Neymar's dad would rather see him move to Madrid.

"Real Madrid are the best club in Europe if you look at their facilities and at the way they treat their players. That's the best option for my son," Neymar senior said to Esporte Interativo.

"It's my dream that he will stay with Santos until after the 2014 World Cup. However, if you ask me about other clubs, I'd say that Madrid are the best option. Nothing has been signed yet though."

Neymar has a contract until 2015 with Santos, but has a limited fee release clause of €45 million.
