Barcelona and Santos are locked in negotiations over the transfer of Brazilian star, Neymar, but after several offers and counter-offers, the father of the Brazilian international has publicly stated that Santos will not sell his son.

NeymarsrSantos reportedly rejected Barcelona’s most recent offer, between €22-25 million and following Thursday’s training session, Neymar told reporters that his father would speak on his behalf.

“I know nothing about the figures being discussed, because I don’t participate in them.  I just asked for a response from Santos and Santos told me that they will not be selling the player.  Life goes on, life goes on.  I know nothing about the figures; they just asked for a certain figure and told them.

“Now it will be a year until the player leaves and in six months he can sign a pre-contract.  Santos should be thinking about that, but nobody has spoke to us about what they are going to do. Meanwhile, we do not have to leverage our position, we can’t and we won’t.”
