Brazil veteran Pele is set to talk with wonderkid Neymar regarding his move to Chelsea, and hopes to change the youngster's mind about leaving Santos.

According to The Sunday Mail, Pele has issued a plea to one of Brazil's brightest talents to continue his development in his homeland before moving to Europe.

Pele, a Santos legend, regards Neymar as one of the most exciting striking prospects in Brazil, and the starlet made a further impact by finding the net on his debut for the national team against the USA last week.

Chelsea have seen a £17 million bid rejected by Santos, who also issued a complaint to FIFA regarding the Premier League champions' conduct.

Having signed Neymar's compatriot Ramires already this transfer window, the Blues look set to attempt another Brazilian swoop before the end of the month. Pele is hoping it will be unsuccessful.
