One of the most sought-after young talents in the world could still be set for the Premier League, with the Daily Star claiming that Neymar’s proposed move to Barcelona has hit a snag.

The 21-year-old’s move from Santos to the Nou Camp looked done and dusted not long ago, though it now appears that the two clubs have come into disagreement over a fee.

Real Madrid are also interested in the talented striker, but Manchester City and Chelsea will take this opportunity to renew their interest in bringing Neymar to England.

The Brazilian has scored an incredible 136 goals in 222 games for Santos already, and is itching for a move to Europe to test himself on the big stage, with great things expected of him in his future career.

City and Chelsea are known to be targeting strikers this summer, with both competing for Edinson Cavani and Radamel Falcao, but could now make Neymar their priority after being alerted to his availability.

Barcelona, meanwhile, have been linked with Liverpool’s Luis Suarez as an alternative to Neymar.
