There have been suggestions that Neymar could be in line for a shock move to Chelsea.
Brazilian is reported to be considering his options after being informed that Paris Saint-Germain are open to a transfer.
In reality, there are very few clubs in the world that could afford his wages. Chelsea conceivably being one of them.
He arrived in Paris from Barcelona for a then world record fee, but, despite almost unbroken domestic success, he has not delivered the one trophy that the club’s Qatari owners prize above all others, which is the Champions League.
He has, though, won four Ligue 1 titles during his time in France, and scored more than 100 goals and provided sixty assists in his time with them.
Chelsea’s new owner Todd Boehly is reported to want to make a “statement” during his first transfer window.
Signing Neymar would certainly fit that bill.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
