- PSG is reportedly willing to let Neymar Jr leave the club at the end of the current campaign
- The Brazilian is however still contracted with the France giants until 2025
- Chelsea, Man City, Man United and Liverpool are amongst the Premier League clubs interested in signing the forward
With a trade not ruled out, Neymar’s management has approached several of England’s best clubs after the 31-year-old star reportedly came up in a recent meeting between Chelsea owner Todd Boehly and Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
With 10 assists, Neymar is tied for first in Ligue 1 and has 12 goals in 19 games.
The Brazil’s joint-all-time leading scorer is looking for a fresh challenge as he enters his sixth season in France after moving there for a record-breaking €222 million. He is also on the verge of another disappointing Champions League exit.
Neymar’s “intermediaries are reported to have spoken with Chelsea, Liverpool, City, United, and Newcastle United,” according to sources, notifying the teams of his intention to relocate to the Premier League.
According to the report, Paris Saint-Germain is willing to facilitate a transaction rather than being in a hurry to let Neymar go.
It is reported that Chelsea owner Boehly is “intrigued” by the prospect of such a high-profile addition, but it is unclear whether anyone else would be willing to fulfil what is anticipated to be an extremely hefty contract demand.
