Sky Sports have reported that Rodrigues will allow his star man to decide when he wants to leave the Brazilian club and where he will go next.
Barcelona are the front runners for the 21 year old’s signature and some reports have suggested that a deal has already been negotiated for 12 months’ time.
Manchester City and Chelsea have both been long term admirers of the talented Brazilian international but many feel his style will be more suited to La Liga rather than the Premier League with inevitable comparisons to Lionel Messi being bounded around.
If Barcelona are on the verge of signing the Santos forward it could be a club record fee for the Spanish giants after Pele branded Neymar as the best player in the world.
“Barcelona are a great club with excellent players and they would be good for Neymar,” Rodrigues told La Xarxa Radio
“We are aware of the interest in the player. But there are other clubs interested. It will be Neymar’s decision.”
