£118.5million Neymar cost PSG in 2017 from Barcelona. Back then, it wasn’t even a royalty that raised too many eyebrows due to the Brazilian’s obvious talent. He still does, of course, but the idea of him coming to Chelsea is dividing supporters on social media.
Many are extremely excited that the links are even a thing, while a number of others are warning their club to approach the Brazil international. Whether you’re excited or not, the move seems unlikely at the moment – and even more so when you consider what he said about the Premier League last year and why it didn’t. not necessarily attract as much as the others.
“I don’t watch the Premier League much, but I heard there was a lot of physical contact in the game,” Neymar told the Daily Mail last year. “But the French championship also has too much physical contact!”
Neymar is the type of player who suffers a foul almost every time he touches the ball. The tricky nature of his style of play means defenders have no choice but to kick the speedy Brazilian. He resembles Eden Hazard in this regard.
GOAL signals that Paris Saint-Germain are “not against the sale” of Neymar during the next summer transfer window if the “good offer” arises. The 30-year-old has around three years left on his current deal at Parc des Princes.
The feeling doesn’t seem to be mutual, however, with Neymar recently insisting he’s happy in Paris and wants to stay put for the time being. He told OhMyGoal: “It’s very true from my side that I want to stay at Paris Saint-Germain.
“Afterwards, nobody told me anything. For my part, it’s clear that I want to stay here at PSG.”
