Brazil striker Neymar has appeared to pour cold water on rumours of a move to Spain by insisting he isn't ready to join Real Madrid or Barcelona.
The 19-year-old Santos starlet is one of Brazil's brightest young prospects and has been heavily linked with a move to Jose Mourinho's Real in the January transfer window.
Premier League outfit Chelsea have also been linked with a move for the striker, who appears increasingly unlikely to see out the remaining four years on his contract at Santos.
Spanish paper Marca even went as far as claiming Real had reached a preliminary deal with Santos to sign the forward after the World Club Cup in December.
However, Neymar appears to have scotched those rumours, saying: "Neither Madrid nor Barcelona interests me right now.
"I said all I had to say and everyone knows it."
