Chelsea have reportedly opened talks with Paris Saint-Germain over a possible summer transfer for Neymar. 

The Brazillian could be on the verge of leaving the Ligue 1 champions following the looming exit of friend and teammate, Lionel Messi. 

The Brazilian endured another difficult season with the French champions with his season wounding up in February due to an ankle injury in February. 

The 32-year-old only managed 18 goals and 17 assists in 29 appearances for the Parisians. 

This development compounded the grudge PSG fans hold towards Neymar who has largely failed to live up to expectations and has become the target of criticism. 

After it was earlier reported that Manchester United and Newcastle were eager to bring him to England, Chelsea are now the latest club looking to secure his service by opening negotiations with PSG, according to Le10 Sport

The Blues’ new boss, Mauricio Pochettino, is said to want a reunion with Neymar, having previously managed him during his stint at PSG in the 2021-22 season.
