SportRazzi has received a notice of a rumor making round of the internet linking Premier League giants Chelsea to Paris Saint Germain (PSG) Brazilian superstar and world highest paid footballer Neymar, despite a long stretched interest in him by La Liga champions Barcelona.
Following a report by Don Balon, the Londoners are ready to drag Neymar to Stamford Bridge in July, by mapping out a transfer fee of over €210million. Following that, most Spanish news agency are reporting that the 27-year-old Brazilian forward will join Frank Lampard and co.
Chelsea is actually looking to get a more fitting replacement for Eden Hazard, who left them earlier this summer to Real Madrid. This news is most frustrating to Barcelona who have been doing all what they could to see that Neymar joins them next Summer.
SportRazzi also hears that Barcelona’s new acquisition Antoine Griezmann is most likely to leave the Camp Nou in summer, as part of the swap agreement with PSG for Neymar.
All of these are happening at a time when the dented relationship between the Brazilian star Neymar and PSG fans are beginning to heal. PSG boss Thomas Tuchel, had earlier this week suggests that he thinks the relationship between Neymar and the club’s supporters is improving, after a very difficult summer where he had tried his very best to force his way out of Paris, to rejoin Messi and co. at his former club.
“About Neymar, yes, it’s getting better, it’s easier. He’s still capable of incredible things. It’s up to him to show it, really, at the end of the day,” Thomas said.
So far there hasn’t been words from Neymar on whether he’s heading to Chelsea or not.
