BY foxsports • July 6, 2011

The agent for Neymar says he has received offers from Barcelona and Real Madrid for the young Brazil striker.

Wagner Ribeiro says any decision on Neymar maybe moving from Santos to Europe lies solely with the 19-year-old sensation.

The agent would not offer details of the offers from the Spanish clubs.

Both clubs, along with Chelsea and Manchester City, are reportedly willing to pay the ?45 million ($64 million) buyout clause in Neymar's contract.

Neymar's agent says the player who helped lead Santos to the Copa Libertadores title wants to play for the Brazilian club at the FIFA Club World Cup in December.

Ribeiro says Barcelona is willing to wait for Neymar, but that Real Madrid wanted him ''yesterday.''
