Neymar: I'm ready to switch to Chelsea19-05-2011
Star Santos Neymar announced that this time would welcome any offer from Chelsea, England, after last year's refusal of the London team.
Neymar decided to spend another season in Brazil, after Chelsea were ready to take it last summer, but the 19-year-old talent clearly is ready to play around abroad.
The striker told the Daily Telegraph: "I was very happy with the interest of Chelsea because it is a club where everyone wants to play football. The right solution, however, was to stay in Santos.
Neymar added: "I dream of playing in Europe. I am proud because of the interest of Chelsea and if I keep playing well I hope to have again offer from them. I know those teams - Chelsea, Manchester - every player dreams of playing for them. I know quite players such as Drogba, Lampard, Gerrard, that are unique athletes. I spoke with Ramirez and David Lewis, and they told me that England is very beautiful country, but London is a wonderful city to live. "
