Chelsea defender David Luiz says his club should go all out to sign Santos wonderkid Neymar.
The bizarrely coiffed teenager is one of the hottest young properties in football at present – and with good reason, as his ability and imagination to perform some quite remarkable pieces of skill have earned him deserved plaudits.
Now David Luiz hopes that recent Brazil friendlies in London have helped Neymar gain a good impression of the city, which in turn could help increase the odds of Chelsea winning the race for his signature, though Barcelona and Real Madrid are thought to also be very keen.
“Neymar’s getting to know London and he likes it very much,” said Luiz in an interview with the London Evening Standard.
“I love it here too. It’s one of the best cities in the world. All I miss is the beach.
“I would definitely like Neymar in my team but it is up to him to decide where he wants to play.
“But I hope he signs for Chelsea.”
