Chelsea owner Todd Boehly and Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi have reportedly met to discuss a transfer for Brazil superstar Neymar. PSG are exploring offloading their star forward, and, according to reports, Chelsea are a potential suitor, solidifying their interest with an informal meeting with Al-Khelaifi on Tuesday.
The Blues were reportedly in for Neymar last summer, with Thomas Tuchel exploring the possibility of reuniting with a player he coached for nearly two years. But the Ligue 1 leaders held on to the Brazilian. Conflicting reports claim PSG doesn’t currently plan on selling Neymar and that the two owners only met in passing in the French capital.
