Pele: I Told Neymar Not To Join Chelsea
Football and Brazilian legend Pele told Chelsea target Neymar not to join Chelsea last season.
The 19-year has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge but his fellow countrymen told the promising youngster to remain in Brazil after an approach from Chelsea last summer. The South American legend said:
“Neymar could play in Spain. It is the kind of football that is suited to his characteristics?
“Eight months ago he could have gone to England, but I told his father that this style is not for him.”
It remains to be seen if the Santos star will join Chelsea with Real Madrid also bidding for the samba star. However, Neymar looks set to leave Brazil this summer with Chelsea or Madrid the most likely destination.
