Santos president Luis Alvaro Ribeiro de Oliveira has urged Brazil international Neymar not to join Chelsea.

The Premier League champions reportedly saw a bid rejected last summer for the 19 year-old, who shone in Brazil's 2-0 win over Scotland at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Neymar has described the prospect of joining Chelsea as a "dream", adding: "The weather I don't like all that much, but I could get used to it."

However, Oliveira told ESPN: "Playing in England is not the same as playing at (Santos' stadium) Vila Belmiro.

"It is much worse, because of the climate and the style of football, which he is unaccustomed to.

"We have demonstrated that, as he has developed into a player who represents the best of Brazilian football - being audacious, skilful, effective, attacking - he is going to become a key figure in the history of Brazilian football.
