Chelsea are in talks to sign Neymar this summer as the Brazil winger calls for PSG exit and is determined to leave the club this summer.

According to L’Equipe, Neymar has asked to leave PSG this summer with Barcelona ready to sign him back but Chelsea are also keenly in the race to sign the 30-year-old.

The report adds PSG are open to Neymar’s exit notwithstanding the new four-year deal they agreed with the player in 2021.

Neymar has two years remaining in his contract but has reportedly told the club he is ready to leave this summer.


Neymar’s PSG exit will bring to an end the All-Star PSG project championed by the club’s President Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Neymar joined PSG from Barcelona for a record £198m transfer fee from Barcelona in 2017. He was the first player to arrive the club in Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s All-Star PSG project.

Kylian Mbappe is currently locked in a contract standoff with the club and is ready to leave the club next summer if not this summer.
