£200m Neymar alert! Brazilian superstar has Premier league message for Chelsea
Paris Saint-Germain forward and Chelsea target Neymar has opened the door to moving to the Premier League at some point in his career.
The Brazilian left Barcelona for PSG in a record £200 million deal just a few seasons ago and has excelled during his time at the French giants, but it is not the toughest of leagues and he has no chance of becoming the best player in Ligue 1.
Chelsea have been eyeing up a possible summer transfer switch as they seek an immediate replacement for Eden Hazard, who is tipped to pack his bags and head over to Real Madrid at the end of the season.
Now Neymar has left the Blues, and the rest of the premier League on alert, after admitting he has a desire to one day make the move to the English league.
He was quoted on the Sky Sports news website: “It is a big competition, one of the greatest in the world. We don’t know what will happen tomorrow but I believe that every great player, at least one day, has to play in the Premier League.
“If you’re playing there, I hope you can keep enjoying the Premier League, because you deserve only the best.”
Could Neymar be the perfect Hazard replacement?
Hazard is one of the best wingers in world football, there is no doubt about that, so replacing him will be a very expensive task for Chelsea when he does leave.
And although Neymar has his critics, and has the ability to dive in the blink of an eye, the Brazilian is an absolute superstar in the game and signing him would take the Blues to another level.
He has the full package and can score aswell as create, and if Hazard leaves for £200m next summer, they will have the funds to land Neymar.
