Chelsea’s surprising bad form this season has gone as far as forcing the Blues to start making preparations for next year’s Summer window transfer. There have been talks that a completely new squad might be seen by next season as the coach and owner have met over bringing in massive changes come Winter and Summer.
A player the Russian owner wants is Brazilian wonderkid and skipper, Neymar. The Barcelona ace has become one of the best forwards in the game since his arrival from Santos to the Camp Nou 3 seasons ago, and current situations at the La Liga giants point to the fact that he could be on his way out sooner than imagined.
His Barcelona move has come with a lot of legal battles attached to it, and the unending accusations continue till now. The weight of these cases forced Rosell Sandro to quit his post as Barcelona’s president, and it is now forcing Neymar’s agent and dad to look for a more serene environment for his boy.
A move to the EPL was reported at Summer, with United willing to lure him away from Spain, and next Summer could present another opportunity for a willing club like Chelsea. Neymar is stalling as per putting pen to paper for a contract extension at Barcelona, and the recent tax evasion allegations that resulted in the freezing of his properties seemed like the final straw to have broken the camel’s back.
Abramovich has already expressed his readiness to sign the player once he is declared available, and will be breaking the bank for his signature that will cost more than the club’s highest transfer deal of 50 million Pounds. Chelsea are ready to make Neymar the club’s highest paid player with a deal worth 280,000 Pounds in weekly wages offered if he agrees to a move.
