TRANSFER NEWS: “Neymar Could Be A Chelsea Player Soon”

By on August 15, 2011

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to meet Santos’ buyout clause for Neymar.

The Daily Star Sunday claims Chelsea have won the race to sign the samba star with Real Madrid buckling over the excessive transfer fee. Chelsea assistant-boss Roberto Di Matteo watched Neymar score for Brazil against Germany last week and was full of praise for the youngster. A source at the club said:

“Roberto was suitably impressed by what he saw. The kid’s a real talent.

“Real Madrid were serious about signing him but, for one reason or another, that deal broke down.

“Money talks and with a £40million offer on the table, Neymar could be a Chelsea player soon.”

    If this is true, then this is great news. He will be a true asset. if we do get him, I’d say we go for Sneijder also. Hopefully there will be some really good surprises by the end of Aug.

    neymar will be a great threat alongside lukaku but what chelsea really needs right now is a creative midfielder and a winger, if we can those two first alongside neymar then chelsea will become a firing squad

    i wouldnt get the hopes up again for this article as neymar has said he wants to play in the club world cup with santos in december 2011 , neymar will possible be avalible for transfer in the january window but it would be awesome if it happens , other young players we should be looking to sign , eden hazard , juan mata , mario gotze , yan mvilla , juan iturbe

    honestly think this could be a high possibility,dont think madrid have the money to go for him and its debateable wheather jose wants him.would be a fantastic signing as he can play on the flanks then the likes of hamsick,modric&snijder and maybe mata if we’r lucky.

    Chelsea shud sign douglas costa and his team mate willan, the creativity will come. This guys are young, plus they play good football.

    Torres tried to dribble through the Stoke defence a number of times yesterday and his efforts were appreciated. But it just reinforces Chelsea’s need for a tricky winger/striker. There are players out there who are specialized in what Torres attempted. Ronaldo and Neymar spring to mind. What Torres attempted is Neymar’s bread & butter, and he does it with twice the effect. Modric is the right answer for a playmaker but he cannot dribble through a defence. Neymar’s tricks and skills scatter defences regularly. If Modric is the next signing, we must follow up with Neymar. Yes, he is young and has a big head, and Santos don’t want to let him go. But we must go for what we need. I think Roman should make Santos an offer they cannot refuse; we don’t need Neymar going to our opposition.

    I don’t believes that this news is not true b’cos the chelsea official don’t say the true about their transfer saga. What about missing Romelu Lukaku? Now they are planning for Neymar

    Man City has certainly found a new bag of tricks in Aguero. The moment he hit the pitch yesterday everything changed. While Chelsea is bogged down with more of the same; City has proof that one specialized player can make the difference. So what’s the answer for Chelsea? We need someone who plays wide as a winger, but can also cut in and unlock defences. Someone who can provide a final killer pass but is accurate when called on to shoot. AVB; it’s obvious; we are talking about Neymar.

    Chelsea pls get me Ahmed musa, he is better than the kalou and malouda at present. Promising young nigeria play. He as established himself as important player in nigeria senior team just at the age of 18yrs. Skillful, creative, pace, and strong. A perfect match 4 chelsea wings

    you guys have said it all, but i prefer Facau of Porto he fit the bill and another player i seriously want to see in Chelsea defence is Garry Cahill i will never forgive Chelsea owner, management and staff if they allow other club capture cahill

    Neymar saga part 5, the same old thing Neymar to Chelsea, as a massive Chelsea fan i want us to get this guy at any cost. So far this is once again paper talk, i dont disagree that Di Matteo was at the Brazil Germany match but he could also have been scouting other players like this kid Gotez who a brilliant player. Also Ramires was playing he may have gone watch him. Anyway back to neymar every chelsea fan wants us to get this guy after seeing Aguero on Monday there is know doubt in my mind we need Neymar a.s.a.p he is in the same playing field as Aguero, and Chelsea must make sure City dont poach him either. If rumors are true that Madrid are not meeting his his buyout claus than Roman personaly should fly to Brazil with his super agent Pini Zhavni and complete this deal. To what i know Zhavani is Neymar Eroupean angent. Creative midfielder we should get is Neymar’s teamate Ganzo, or this Mario Gotez.
    Big up the blues!!
