Spread the love

According to strong sources, Chelsea are in conversations with Neymar Jr to lure him away from the Parc des Princes. 

This information is coming with Chelsea having dolled out a mind boggling £600million on new arrivals in the 2022/23 summer and winter transfer windows. 

Top tabloid in France, Le Parisien, put out an information that American owner of The Blues Todd Boehly traveled to the French Capital to begin negotiations with Paris Saint Germain over a deal for the 31-year-old. 

The Parisians splashed a whooping amount in excess of £150million to sign Neymar from Barcelona to Paris Saint Germain in 2017, with the current contract of the Brazilian with the club based in Paris still running until 2025.

Even at his current age, Neymar Jr would still not move to any football club for meagre price. 

The news that Chelsea are in talks with Chelsea is coming days following the Brazilian confirmation of his row with club chief Luis Campos and team-mate Marquinhos.

The wrangle occured after Paris Saint Germain 3-1 defeat to A.S Monaco in the Ligue 1 on Saturday, with Club chief Luis Campos alleging that some players of the team are lacking guts, and are even dispirited.

And Neymar Jr in addition to team Captain Marquinhos couldn’t stomach the allegations as they revolted and hit back with the squabble becoming fiercer. 

Neymar Jr was involved in the encounter against Bavarian side Bayern Munich on Tuesday, but he couldn’t take the side to glittering light as they lost by a lone goal. 

The attacker has performed optimally in the centre of PSG’s attack this season under Christophe Galtier. 

He is among the monstrous attacking trio of the Parisians that also includes Kylian Mbappe and Argentine great Lionel Messi.

He has scored seventeen (17) goals and made sixteen (16) assists in 28 appearances in all competitions in the 2022/23 campaign.

This is in spite of an existent squabble involving the Brazilian with the Frenchman Kylian Mbappe which has been swept under the carpet. 

Neymar Jr also came under scrutiny from his neighbors, due to his immensely loud celebration of his 31st birthday on the 5th of February, 2023.

Chelsea have spent outrageously in the transfer market this season, signing players across Europe including breaking a British transfer record fee over Enzo Jeremais Fernandez from Benfica for £107m.

Many other sources have also spoken about how Todd Boehly is willing to go overboard to try acquiring the services of Borrusia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham who played against Chelsea in a one nill victory for his side on Wednesday. 

Neymar has scored one-hundred-and-seventeen (117) goals in one-hundred-and-seventy-two appearances for The Parisiens which is definitely not a bad return for a man who has also been plagued with injuries since he joined the side.

The Brazilian move from Santos to Barcelona in 2013

Neymar Jr moved to the European scene by joining Barcelona from Brazilian side Santos FC in July 2013, a transfer that caused lots of controversy on the amount spent by the Spanish club in getting the Brazilian.

Barcelona earlier said Neymar cost 57.1 million euros ($55.3m) but prosecutors believe it was nothing less than 83 million euros ($80.5m).

He spent four years with the Catalan Giants scoring one-hundred-and-five (105) goals in one-hundred-and-eighty-six (186) appearances. 

He is also Brazil’s highest goalscorer alongside the late Pele with seventy-seven (77) goals in one-hundred-and-twenty-four (124) appearances.
