It has been rumoured that Brazil superstar Neymar could snub Barcelona in order to make a move to the Premier League and specifically Chelsea in the near future.
According to various Spanish sources, The Blues’ are ready to splash €210M in order to bring the PSG forward to West London, reinvesting the entire fee plus more that the club received for Eden Hazard.
Neymar’s situation at PSG has been spiralling recently and over the summer, with the club’s fans wanting him gone after disputes over the players’ future leading to him missing training and seemingly going on strike.
Since then, the Brazilian has been integral to PSG’s success this season despite his off-the-field problems. Scoring winners and bailing out his side in a number of league victories. While his manager, Tuchel, claims that his relationship with fans is ‘improving’ it still seems that there are rifts between the player and club.
Chelsea are still yet to hear from CAS regarding the club’s appeal against their transfer ban, however any move for Neymar is unlikely to be effected by the outcome as it would probably take place next summer, rather than in January.
We think this ones pretty unlikely, but you never know. What are your thoughts Blues’ fans?
