SAO PAULO (AP) Brazilian club Santos accepted the offers made by Barcelona and Real Madrid for young striker Neymar, who will now decide where he wants to go.
Details of the offers were not made official, but Brazilian media reported that Real Madrid is willing to pay 35 million for Neymar, 7 million more than rival Barcelona. Real Madrid also reportedly offered a bigger salary, but the player has said in the past that his personal preference is to play alongside Lionel Messi in Barcelona.
Santos vice president Odilio Rodrigues said early Saturday that the offers were "similar," but admitted that Neymar had a "gentleman's agreement" with Barcelona.
