Chelsea Make Formal Offer for Neymar


According to French newspaper Le10Sport, Chelsea have made a formal offer for Brazilian starlet Neymar. Speculation suggests the 21 year old is set to stay in Brazil until after World Cup 2014, but clubs like Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Chelsea have all made their interest very apparent in recent months.

Roman Abramovich has made his desire bring in a ‘marquee’ signing known to all, and the London side has since been linked to players like Falcao, Cavani, and Neymar as well. A transition to London could be much easier than it appears on the surface, with fellow Brazilians David Luiz, Oscar, Ramires, and Lucas Piazon all on the books at Chelsea.

With 129 goals in 209 appearances for Santos, the Brazilian has shown the world that he is comfortable in his homeland and needs a new challenge if he wants to live up to the expectations surrounding him. Depending on how his World Cup goes, he will certainly have options after the summer of 2014. A move to the current Champions Leauge holders could be interesting, but it’ll never be easy for Chelsea if both Bayern Munich and Barcelona are interested. The recent appointment of Pep Guardiola at Bayern will certainly be reason to consider the Munich side, while ignoring any interest from Barcelona would just be silly.

What are your thoughts on the Neymar situation? Would you like to see him in London or do you think he’s better suited in Germany or Spain? Do you think he’ll leave before the World Cup or wait until after? Let us know in the comments below.

    If he is as good as everyone says he is then I would love to see him in a chelsea shirt he didn’t impress me against England but you cant judge a player by one performance I think the best options are Chelsea or bayern Munich. Chelsea he has a lot friends with him which will help him settle in easy and the German league is an easier league than the EPL or the Spanish league and Barcelona have messi who he is being compared to so he would be brave to go there because if he don’t play well he will get slated! So for me I think bayern Munich is his safest bet epically with pep as his manager. Chelsea would be a brave move as well because it’s the hardest league in football when you concider the cold weekends away at stoke where they ain’t afraid to kick you it will take a top player to succeed that’s why I don’t think you can compare messi and ronaldo ronaldo proved hisself but would would messi be like in the premier league? And of course what would neymar be like in the premier league

  10. If he is senceble he should go for bayern or chelsea where there wont be much of compition. Becouse if he should play for bacà the likes of messi will outshine him. Chelsea should be the best for him fot now.
