Agbonlahor can’t believe Chelsea could finalise £70m Neymar signing after source’s update

February 28, 2023

Gabby Agbonlahor has claimed a potential move for Neymar is not a “deal worth doing” for Chelsea after their transfer splurge this season.

The former Aston Villa striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insisted the Stamford Bridge club should focus on bedding the likes of Mykhaylo Mudryk in rather than signing another “superstar”.

Sources told this site on Thursday (23 February) thatChelsea could be the only potential landing spot for Neymar, 31, if he is to make a Premier League move this summer.

It is understood that Liverpool, Man United, Man City and Newcastle have also been contacted about a possible deal as PSG look to cash in – but feel a deal is unlikely due to the finances involved.

£70-80million could be enough to do a deal for the Brazil international – who earns a reported wage of almost £1million-a-week in Paris.

Neymar has notched 18 goals and 17 assists in 29 appearances as a regular starter this season.
