Newcastle United Had Eyes on PSG Star Who Preferred Move to Chelsea Instead

There were plenty of rumors linking Neymar Jr. to Chelsea this past summer transfer window. 

A move to Stamford Bridge made some sense as Chelsea had then manager Thomas Tuchel, who coached the 30-year-old at Paris Saint-Germain, and has Thiago Silva, a teammate on the Brazil national team and PSG. 

Rumors linking Neymar to Chelsea never materialized into anything, and the Brazilian footballer is in excellent form so far this 2022-23 football season. 

However, The Sun recently reported (h/t Sky Sports) that the veteran forward was hopeful for a move to the Premier League, but the only genuine interest coming out of England was Newcastle United

Although Newcastle United has talented players like Bruno Guimarães, it’s tough to go from Paris or to consider living in London to Newcastle upon Tyne for Neymar, who has lived near São Paulo in Brazil and then Barcelona. 

Regardless, PSG kept Neymar despite the rumors, and the veteran forward is under contract until 2025, so should he remain with the French giants through this contract its likely that he doesn’t play for another European club.
