Chelsea bound? Thiago Silva attempts to convince Neymar as PSG future remains unclear



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.
