The future of Brazilian icon Neymar looks to be up in the air after ties between the Santos youth product and Paris Saint-Germain appear to be severed beyond repair.
"Neymar’s father and his agent Pini Zahavi are in constant contact with the PSG management. Club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has indicated in a recent interview with the outlet that it was the end of the “bling-bling” era at PSG, comments which Neymar’s team thought were aimed at him." (GFFN)
With PSG looking for a potential suitor that would be willing to cover at least the bulk - if not all - of his current wage packet, fellow Brazilian Thiago Silva has embarked on a campaign to try to convince Neymar to join him at Stamford Bridge under German tactician Thomas Tuchel after remaining in regular contact with his compatriot over a possible escape route to west London.
Though a potential move for Neymar is unlikely to materialize however after Chelsea has already begun to push for Leeds United talisman Raphinha, while new club owner Todd Boehly also is a big admirer of Barcelona's Ousmane Dembélé.
Neymar is also said to not prefer a move away from PSG, but with Nasser Al-Khelaifi adamant about changing the culture inside the club under new manager Christoph Galtier, there could still be a possible summer move for the iconic forward.
