The proposal was made in July 2010. At the time, Neymar was 18 years old and was a highlight of the team in the Paulista Championship and in the Copa do Brasil. The player was touted as one of the biggest revelations in Brazilian football and Santos would only accept a departure from the striker if Chelsea paid the termination penalty, which was 81 million reais.

Now, 12 years later, Neymar is again being probed by Chelsea. Paris Saint-Germain is willing to hear proposals from the player and the Blues is one of the few clubs able to afford a possible arrival of the Brazilian star.

Neymar has a contract with Paris Saint-Germain until 2025 and the club activated a clause to extend until 2027. The salary of the Brazilian star is considered an obstacle for great teams in their hiring. However, the new owner of Chelsea, Todd Boehly, wants a strong name for the beginning of his project.

Paris Saint-Germain is undergoing a process of reformulation and sees Mbappé as the protagonist of the project for the next season. Neymar would be dissatisfied with the attitude of the team’s board that does not place the Brazilian as a priority in the squad.
