Chelsea pondered signing Neymar this summer, but ultimately decided against it due to his physical difficulties. The in-form PSG winger is back on the radar of the London giants. The Brazilian international was open to coming to Chelsea in the summer at the time.
Neymar’s current play has persuaded new owner Todd Boehly that he is worth the money. As a result, the Blues may make a bid for the 30-year-old attacker at the end of the season. In 16 appearances, the Brazilian winger has 12 goals and nine assists.
The South American attacker is being considered an expendable asset by the Parisians, and they are prepared to let him leave at the end of the campaign. The Brazilian is on wages of nearly €40m per season, and the Ligue 1 giants were open to contributing to most of his wages just to get him off their books.
It will be interesting to see if the Blues come forward with a concrete offer for the former Barcelona attacker in the coming months and secure his services. The London giants could certainly use more quality in the attacking unit, and Neymar is a world-class footballer.
Despite being 30 years old, Neymar has the ability to play at a high level for the next few years and help Chelsea win big titles. Neymar has shown his worth in France and Spain. A transfer to the Premier League may be an appealing option for the Brazilian striker.
