Brazil and Santos striker Neymar has rubbished claims he will sign a contract for Spanish giants Real Madrid today after passing a secret medical test in Sao Paolo.

Recent reports in Brazil claimed that the player had undergone a medical test in the presence of Madrid's head of medical services, Carlos Diez, and that he has already agreed to join the Spanish giants in the coming winter transfer window.

The player confirmed that these rumors are not true, insisting that his visit to the hospital was for personal reasons.

"That is all speculation, there is no deal. I went to the hospital to solve a personal problem,” the 19-year-old player told Brazilian sports newspaper Lancenet after Santos' win over Corinthians on Sunday.

"I have been sold like 30 times.

 "There is no truth to that, I am a player of Santos and I will stay here to play at the club's centenary in 2012,” concluded Neymar who was recently also a target of European giants Barcelona, Chelsea and AC Milan.
