Chelsea are ready to make a big move in the transfer market and as reported by Le Parisien, their target is none other than Neymar. The London team seeks to strengthen its offensive rotation and sees the Brazilian as the ideal piece to achieve it. However, the uncertainty about Neymar’s future at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) continues to be one of the big unknowns for next season.
So far, the new PSG coach, Luis Enrique, has not had direct talks with Neymar. During his presentation, the Spanish coach referred to the Brazilian striker with whom he met at FC Barcelona, but did not give details about his future. In the midst of the rumors and with the reflectors pointing mainly to PSG, what happens with Neymar has been left aside, although not entirely.
The Premier League club that goes with everything for Neymar
As for the player’s physical condition during training in Paris, some doubts have arisen. In addition, as usual with him, rumors have appeared that place him far from the Parque de los Príncipes. For PSG, in the midst of transitioning their project with new signings, Neymar’s departure would mean considerable financial relief, given that his salary amounts to 26 million euros net per year. However, no one can argue with his quality, evidenced by his 18 goals and 16 assists in 29 games last season.
Meanwhile, Le Parisien once again links Chelsea to the Brazilian striker. Although Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, PSG president, prefers to retain Neymar to avoid the possibility of also losing Kylian Mbappé in the near future, doubts persist.
Chelsea, who have released several stars this summer, would be interested in a loan rather than a transfer, but cannot offer the player the chance to play in European competition next season. In any case, this situation adds more excitement to the Parisian market and leaves open the possibility of a new chapter in Neymar’s career.
