Neymar’s former agent reveals Chelsea bid

Wagner Ribeiro, Neymar’s former agent, has revealed that Chelsea once tried to sign the Brazil international.
Long before he became one of the game’s most reputable players, Neymar was at Santos, establishing a reputation as a uniquely gifted teenager.
It was at this time that Chelsea made an offer for the youngster.
"There were many calls for him," Ribeiro told AS, per Mirror Football. "I received an official offer from Chelsea the day Neymar debuted with the Brazilian team in 2010.
"They made an offer, we studied it, but in the end we didn’t decide anything. On that occasion, we transferred it to Neymar’s father and the player himself.
"Then came other offers from Bayern Munich and Juventus, with whom I had a meeting in Turin."
Santos' former president, Luis Alvaro de Oliveira Ribeiro, claimed previously that Chelsea's offer was in the region of £25m.
