Brazil star Neymar is reportedly interested in a move to the Premier League after being informed Paris Saint-Germain will not stand in his way if he wishes to depart.
ESPN reports that Neymar’s agent has contacted Chelsea to gauge their interest in bringing the 30-year-old, who has scored 13 goals and added six assistants to 22 Ligue 1 appearances last season.
Although Neymar’s talent is unquestionable, his health is likely to be in jeopardy, as he missed two months in the campaign after an ankle injury, and that will happen in the 2020-21 season when he has played just 18 league games due to an ankle and adductor injury. .
The ESPN report says Neymar’s agent, Pini Zahavi, believes there are only “two or three teams” who will be able to meet his wage demands, and it is thought Chelsea are hoping to do something under the new ownership of Todd Boehly.
The Spanish media Sport claims that Neymar has opened a clause in his PSG contract as soon as he can on July 1 to add one more year to his contract – which includes the French giants until 2027 – but that does not mean it is possible.
Chelsea’s Brazilian defender and former PSG team-mate Neymar, Thiago Silva has spoken of his desire to sign the striker, but his € 43 million salary could stand in the way if the Stamford Bridge club decide to use the transfer window. security resources.
