Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar Jr. is linked with a move away from the French capital. One of the names reportedly in the mix for the 31-year-old is Chelsea.
While the Blues have former PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino, it doesn’t seem like the Argentine wants a reunion. CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs tells PSG Report, citing sources, that the Premier League club won’t make a move for Neymar.

The English club appears to be investing in youth, and although veteran leadership is needed, the Brazilian isn’t a player they might want. As a result, Neymar’s options outside of PSG are dwindling.
If the 2015 UEFA Champions League winner wants a change, he’ll probably have to take a pay cut. Will he? That’s the million-dollar question. Not money clubs can afford or don’t want to take on those wages.
Neymar can still earn that money and leave PSG, but it’s likely to result in him leaving for Saudi Arabia. With the 2026 FIFA World Cup in three years, it’s ideal for him to remain in Europe.
However, unless something drastic changes, his future will be in Paris.
