Neymar’s adventure at PSG is over as Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, president of the club, wants to establish greater discipline within his squad. The professionalism of the former Barcelona player has been called into question be certain individuals within the PSG dressing room and this includes striker Kylian Mbappé, as reported this week by Spanish daily El País.

Pini Zahavi, Neymar’s agent has now got plenty of work on his hands with few teams able to afford the Brazilian star striker, whose goal is now to win the Ballon d’Or away from the Parc des Princes. Although Neymar appears to prefer a to return to the Camp Nou, Barcelona’s financial situation presents an unlikely destination for his next move with England being cited as the next stop in his career. Three clubs are reportedly in contention for the Brazilian’s signature: Chelsea, Manchester United and Newcastle United with Zahavi already involved in talks with Todd Boehly, the new owner of the London club, ESPN point out.

Boehly wants to start his reign at Stamford Bridge with a bang. Thiago Silva, with whom Neymar shared a dressing room at PSG and the Brazilian team, has spoken well of his compatriot but it remains to be seen, however, if Tuchel or Chelsea want to gamble on the 30-year-old player.

Neymar spoke in February with the Daily Mail about a hypothetical move to England, something the Brazilian didn’t seem to be too interested in at the timer “I don’t get to watch the Premier League much, but I’ve heard it’s a very physical game... but in the French league there’s also a lot of contact ”. Andrés Rueda, president of Santos, has hinted at the possibility of Neymar returning to the club where he cut his teeth. The owner pointed out that it would be “immature” on his part “not to do something with Neymar”
