Neymar: Has no plans to leave Santos before the end of his contract
Neymar has reaffirmed his plans to stay at Santos until 2014 after rejecting the chance to move to Europe amid interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The Brazilian star is wanted by both the Spanish giants, but he has made it clear he wants to stay put after accepting the South American Player of the Year award.
Neymar is contracted to the Brazilian club until 2014 and he has no intention of leaving the club early.
"For now at least I have said no thanks to the interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona," said Neymar.
"I have a contract until 2014 with Santos and I intend to stay and complete it. After that I do not know.
"I dream about playing in Europe, but when that will be I don't know either."
Along with ignoring speculation over his future, Neymar is focussing on the World Cup finals that will be in his homeland in two years' time.
"What I want to do is to play and to try and win the World Cup in Brazil in 2014," he continued.
"I am preparing for that already and I hope that we will have a great side for it and that with my team-mates' help we can go for the trophy."
