Movement Of Neymar Still On Hold
Much has been said about the 19 year old and to be honest when I first heard his name I thought it was just another young, promising Brazilian who was soon to fizzle out like the likes of Robinho and Adriano. But it does seem that Neymar could become a household name in the years to come especially with a big move this Summer.
I think if Abramovich reached into his back pocket and produced the money that is needed, this could be the move of the Summer. Not only could he be a hit in the next two seasons or so, but with the likes of Drogba and Lampard ageing he would be able to fit right in and become a favourite amongst the Stamford Bridge faithful.
The player who is most noticeable for his mohican haircut, Neymar, played a massive part in securing a place in the Copa Libertadores final, after which he will link up with his Brazil team mates in Argentina. Chelsea, inevitably, are not the only team keeping their eyes on the Brazilian.
Real Madrid and Barcelona are also believed to be interested and one could only imagine the temptation to join the greatest team in club football, Barca. Apparently the price tag is 45 million euro but with the Catalonian giants more concerned about agreeing a deal with Arsenal for Fabregas, this would leave a great chance for either Chelsea or Real Madrid to pounce.
I would love to hear any comments you may have.
