Chelsea are one of only three teams that could welcome PSG and Brazil star Neymar to their club this summer alongside Newcastle United and Manchester United, according to reports.

Neymar, 30, became the most expensive footballer in history when he moved to PSG from Barcelona for a fee of £220 million in 2018, and has spent five years with the French giants. 

According to reports, PSG and Juventus have been in discussion about a deal for the Brazilian however the biggest hurdle to overcome would be his high wage demands. 

There are only three teams that would be financially capable to sign Neymar with one of which being Chelsea. New owner Todd Boehly has promised his manager Thomas Tuchel that there will be a minimum of 6 players joining his squad this summer.
