According to sources in Spain the Chelsea football club and Barcelona reached on a “verbal agreement” on neymar deal for a world record fee of £156m. Chelsea president Roman Abramovich trying everything possible to land the Brazilian star in England.
Abramovich is prepared to invest heavily in the Barcelona play-maker to signal their intent as the league leaders are set to make a return to the Champions League next season. The transfer (if happens) will shatter the current transfer record £89.3 m set by Paul Pogba’s return from Juventus to Manchester united. The fee for the 25-year-old is said to have been agreed between the two parties.
However Chelsea boss Conte could block the world record transfer as he is not in favor of splashing huge amount of money on single player. With the aim to trim the squad in the summer before introducing new players, the Italian is said to be keen to strengthen a variety of positions rather than spending on one main star.
on the other hand, the 25 years old Brazilian continued to amazed the world with his outrageous performances for both club and country .Neymar has been in an impressive run of form and his ability to step up in the big games cannot be understated as he anchored Barcelona’s historic comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League and played a vital role in Brazil’s victory over Uruguay on Thursday as well.
With his spectacular performances in last few years Neymar’s buy-out clause is going only one way and that is up, valued at €200m in 2016 and €222m in 2017. Where it is also set to increase up to €250m between 2018 to 2021.
If Neymar makes into the premier league, it will be very difficult for defenders to stop the Brazilian, ultimately making Chelsea almost unstoppable force in the competition. The Chelsea who are points table topper by a huge margin of ten points will be a force to fear with his inclusion in the team.
