Santos are not willing to sell prodigy Neymar for less than 45 million Euros amid interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Real, who finished runners-up to Barcelona in the Spanish La Liga last season, have made an offer to sign the in-form forward during the summer, according to Santos president Luis Alvaro Ribeiro.

"Neymar’s price is 45 million Euros and we will not sell him for less than this amount,” Ribeiro told Italian paper La Gazzetta dello Sport on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old is one of the hottest prospects in Brazilian football. He has produced a string of impressive performances with Santos and the Brazilian national team.

He is set to take part in the final of the Copa Libertadores, the South American equivalent of the European Champions League, between Santos and Uruguay’s Penarol on Wednesday. Neymar will be also part of Brazil’s senior team for the upcoming Copa America in July.
