Chelsea are not alone on Neymar’s case. Tottenham could also take action to recruit the Brazilian from PSG in the coming months.
According to information obtained by TdF, Chelsea aren’t the only Premier League outfit to be mindful of Neymar’s situation. Tottenham are also reportedly following the Brazil international’s case closely. Reputed to be very demanding with his employers, Antonio Conte would continue to call for reinforcements to improve his workforce. And the possible departure of Harry Kane, next summer, would lead him to think about alternatives. The English international would indeed appear on the shelves of Bayern Munich, who would have asked him not to extend his contract. The striker could thus benefit from an exit voucher and join Bavaria through a transfer.
PSG ready to let him slip away for 100 M€?
To compensate for his departure, the Italian coach could review his organization. The technician could notably make room for Neymar, whose profile seems to please him. The media understands that the PSG could let slip the Brazilian in the event of a proposal of around 100 million euros. A sum that could be partly offset by the transfer of Harry Kane. In addition to taking charge of his emoluments, the big question would be linked to the player’s ability to adapt to the demands of Antonio Conte. The Italian expects his players to work hard in training, but the Parisian has sometimes been associated with a questionable lifestyle.
PSG paid 222 million euros to secure the services of Neymar in 2017. The player has since participated in 152 games, under the Parisian tunic, for a total of 109 goals and 67 assists. And the native of Mogidas Cruzes is in particularly good shape this start of the season: the striker has managed to score 9 times and deliver 7 assists in 8 appearances, in all competitions. His contract runs until June 2025, with an option to extend it until 2027.
