Chelsea Are Interested in PSG Star Neymar.
Chelsea’s new owners hope to spend big to begin the post-Abramovich era.
Teddy Boehly is the head of the consortium that bought the club from the Russian investor in a deal valued at £4.25billion.
There has been a lot of implementation in the club, with Petr Cech, Bruce Buck, and Marina Granovskaia leaving.
Boehly will be in charge of the club’s transfer operations as they wait to hire a sporting director and is hoping to show his financial might during the transfer window.
Thomas Tuchel is also waiting for new signings to strengthen his side after an underwhelming performance in the just-ended season.
Chelsea did reach two cup finals but did not manage to clinch any cup. They finished last season’s Premier League campaign at number three.
There will be a different lineup at Chelsea with Lukaku’s departure to Inter Milan on loan. On the other hand, Chelsea is planning for a new signing before the transfer window ends.
Raheem Sterling is considered one of the top targets, with the club optimistic that a deal will be finalized.
Leeds United’s Raphinha is also on the radar as the club already made a bid, and rumors suggest that he could be on his way.
Neymar Would Improve Chelsea’s Attack
Chelsea could strengthen their attack with the arrival of PSG star Neymar Jr.
According to various sources, Chelsea has an interest in the Brazilian attacker, with his future at PSG unclear.
He is currently tied to the French powerhouse until 2025, with a one-year extension available from July 1.
When the club’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was asked to confirm if the player would stay, he declined to assure fans that Neymar would continue playing for PSG.
Tuchel has a history with the superstar since the two worked together in PSG, won two French league titles, and reached the Champions League final in his first season with PSG.
It was not always smooth for the two since they had conflicts, mainly when Neymar tried to leave.
This led to much negativity towards the Brazilian from PSG fans, and the coach refused to condemn those who booed him.
He went on to admit that the player’s character was different from what most people thought.
The coach stated the fans were proud of their club, and it was disturbing for them to hear rumors going on for weeks about a player wanting to leave.
He revealed that he told the superstar that in life, there were times one has to face the truth and grapple with the consequences.
Tuchel also added that Neymar had a good heart and that it was hard for most people to notice because they watched him only when he was playing football.
Thiago Also Talked About the Rumors Of Neymar To Chelsea
Thiago Silva is enthusiastic about the possibility of welcoming his close friend to Chelsea amid the uncertainties surrounding his future at his current club.
Chelsea is one of the few clubs that can afford the player, and the fact that they are looking for a winger made his international teammate talk about his desire to play together at Chelsea.
Silva played with Neymar at PSG, and he stated that the player has to go to Chelsea if he plans on leaving Paris.
He explained that it was one of the best decisions for the player and reminded everyone of the player’s ability and how it would help the team.
He also admitted to being friends with his international teammate and hoped that the rumors would materialize into him ending up at the club.
PSG’s failure to win the Champions League this season sparked criticism of Neymar. He has been the scapegoat of the team anytime there is a downfall.
The winger’s attitude is a cause of concern for many within the club, according to many sources.
