Mourinho leaves Abramovich to sign Neymar
London: Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho left Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich behind in the race to sign Neymar.
Mourinho is ready to pay the 40 million pounds demanded by Brazil side Santos for their strike star, a newspaper reports.
Chelsea’s billionaire owner will not budge above 30 million pounds and a club source admitted: “Jose is ready to pay the asking price but Abramovich thinks 30 million pounds is a fair price for someone who’s only 19 and has had injury problems.”
“So it looks like Mourinho has got his man,” the source added.
