"When the moment comes we are going to sit with my family.

"We are going to think about it and discuss the options."

Chelsea tried to sign Neymar last summer, but the skilful forward did not feel the time was right to leave Brazil.

However, the teenager would give serious thought to a move to West London this summer if Chelsea come calling again for his services.


"Last year, when Chelsea came, we sat together and we thought it wasn't the time yet," added Neymar. "If it happens this year, we are going to sit again and are going to discuss about it."

Despite attracting interest from a host of clubs, Neymar insists he is happy at Santos for the time being.

"I am happy there and, when the time comes, God will make me take the right decision and things will happen," concluded Neymar.

Neymar's Brazilian team-mate David Luiz would love to see his compatriot join him at Stamford Bridge.

"Neymar is going to be one of the best players in the world and I would love it if he came to join me at Chelsea," said Luiz.

"I'm very happy to be at one of the best teams in the world and everything has been very positive.

"Chelsea are fighting for the Premier League and Champions League and I am sure that I'll become a better player.

"For Neymar it would be the same."
