Paris Saint Germaine are set to embark on convincing Neymar to pen a new contract since his current one is running out next season. No club has shown real interest in signing the Brazilian but Chelsea might as well sign up for the race. Why? Neymar himself admitted that working under Tuchel has been one of the proudest moments of his career. Tuchel too has repeatedly appreciated the talent of the attacker.
Another reason why Chelsea stand a big chance of signing the attacker is that they have more than enough money to sign him and maintain his weekly salary. It is understood that at PSG he earns a whooping €400k per week whereas Chelsea’s highest earner (Romelu Lukaku) earns €350k per week.
Chelsea are bound to lose Marcos Alonso in the next one week and at the moment, the club has not really scouted for players to fill in for the Spaniard. Barcelona are already in advanced talks to sign the full back and are currently waiting for Chelsea to set the price tag in order to make a bid for him. While Chelsea are preparing to set a price for their asset, fans are not happy at how slow Chelsea are conducting the business. According to the fans, once knowing Marcos Alonso’s decision, Chelsea would have chased after Noussour Mazraoui who was very eager to join the English Premier League.
Mazraoui has already penned a deal with Bayern Munich and from the recent announcement by Bayern’s football director Hassan Salihamidzic, there is no way Chelsea can divert the player’s destination. Nicolas Tagliafico is still on the radar though.
Kepa Arrizabalaga is expected to leave the club in the summer. After Tuchel’s recent comments about there being no other way of increasing the Spaniard’s game time, there is no doubt that Kepa will start looking elsewhere for gametime. Lazio are the leading contenders to sign him.
