Reports from Brazil suggest that Santos have decided how much it will take for them to part with young forward Neymar.

The 19-year-old is being tracked by a whole host of European superpowers, including Chelsea, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Barcelona, Inter and Juventus, with all the interested parties watching developments in South America closely.

Now Santos’ president Luis Alvaro Ribeiro has reportedly suggested that the Brazilian club will be looking for a fee of some €45M for Neymar, €10M more than they suggested he might be bought for last year.

Indeed, Chelsea were believed to have agreed a fee with Santos just months ago, but Neymar, after consulting with his family and agent, decided he wished to see out the whole of 2011 with the Brazilian club, snubbing the Stamford Bridge side.
