The Brazilian star has been linked with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea, among others, but his current club do not think that his departure is definite.
"Santos have now offered us a deal for him to renew his contract, but we will have to wait and talk to them," Neymar's father and agent explained at the Laureus World Sports Awards in Brazil.
While speculation continues unabated about a move to Europe, Neymar intends to see out his current deal, at least, with Santos.
His father, also called Neymar, said: "It is very difficult to see him leaving before 2013 although we will have to think about what is best for him."
