PSG Mercato: Neymar, the truth about the Al-Khelaïfi-Boehly meeting
Recently, the media mentioned a meeting between the presidents of PSG and Chelsea for a possible transfer of Neymar. The truth has come out on this subject.
Since the last few days, a crazy rumor sends Neymar to Chelsea next summer. Disappointed by the performance of the Brazilian star, Paris Saint-Germain wants to reduce its wage bill and is seriously thinking of parting with the former Barcelona attacking midfielder. According to Le Parisien, the Parisian leaders have already started talks with their Chelsea counterparts about the 31-year-old.
A big fan of Neymar, the new Blues boss, Todd Boehly, would be willing to sign a check for 60 million euros to his counterpart Nasser Al-Khelaïfi to complete this operation. On the sidelines of the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 between PSG and Bayern Munich, the two presidents met in Paris on February 14 to discuss the matter. The reality would be quite different according to another source in Paris.
PSG Mercato : Neymar will honour his contract with Paris SG
After the journalists Ben Jacobs of CBS Sport media and Christian Falk of CaughtOffside, it is the turn of the daily Team to bring a different discourse on the future of Neymar and the meeting between Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and Todd Boehly. According to the information collected by the sports newspaper, the discussion between the presidents of Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea would rather concern the missed loan of the Moroccan international Hakim Ziyech this winter in Paris. For his part, Neymar would like to honor his commitment with the club of the French capital.
“In recent days, Le Parisien explained that during the meeting on Tuesday between PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and his Chelsea counterpart, Todd Boehly, the two men discussed a possible transfer of Ney. A close source assures that the English club only wanted to apologize for the failure of the loan of Hakim Ziyech“, explains Team, which however specifies that
“The Blues are in any case among the few clubs who, last summer, had considered an arrival of the ex-Barcelona player – finding the conditions to make the deal being another story. Could this type of speculation tickle Neymar’s fancy? One thing is certain, the interested party does not intend to quit. Under contract in Paris until 2027, he sees himself continuing in the capital for the moment.”
Now remains to be seen if the deal could not change by next summer.
