How Neymar To Barcelona Link Could Be Great News For Chelsea

Loads of clubs have been credited with an interest in Neymar, but it looks to have come down to two familiar foes (Barcelona and Real Madrid) who will fight it out for his signature.

Madrid are undergoing a dramatic redevelopment this summer as they look to get fans back on their side, and what better way to do that than by bringing one of football's biggest names to the club.

Barcelona are likewise set for a big summer and look like favourites to bring the PSG forward back to the club.

Football fans all over the world will be keeping an eye on this one, but one group of fans who will be watching it closely will be the supporters of Chelsea.

Chelsea have already lost Eden Hazard this summer, and as per reports last week, the Blues refused a bid in the region of £35million for Willian.

That interest now appears to have abated with the Catalan giants prepared to beat their Spanish rivals to the signing of Neymar.

Certainly, it remains to be seen whether Barca will revisit their interest in Willian, but the hierarchy at Stamford Bridge will assuredly be watching on in the hope that a deal to bring Neymar back to the Nou Camp can be agreed; together forgetting all about the Chelsea man.

With a transfer ban hanging over their heads, the possibility of losing another star man is completely unimaginable for Chelsea.

The loss of Hazard is a huge blow, but with Calum Hudson-Odoi, Willian and Pedro all competent options on the flanks, the consensus will be that Chelsea may just muddle through in the short-term.

But, if Willian was also to leave it would leave the Blues painfully short of experienced options.
