Football rumours: Chelsea offered ‘incredible deal’ to PSG striker Neymar
What the newspapers say
Chelsea have been offered an ‘incredible deal’ to sign the Paris St Germain striker Neymar before the transfer window closes on Thursday, the Daily Mail reports. The Blues have been approached to sign the 30-year-old, however, according to the newspaper, it could be difficult to cross the line during this transfer window as the London club pursue other goals.
The Times also carries the Blues news, writing that the AC Milan striker Raphael Leao, 23, has been linked with the club in a potential coup. However, it could easily be scuppered by its reported price of £126m.
Elsewhere, Brentford could be set to hijack Arsenal move for Shakhtar Donetsk striker Mykhaylo Mudryk. The 21-year-old Ukrainian striker is valued at £25million which would crush the club’s transfer record. The Bees paid £17.1m for winger Keane Lewis-Potter earlier this summer.
And the Daily Mail says Newcastle are ‘exploring the possibility of trying to sign’ Youri Tielemans of the Leicester crisis club. The 25-year-old midfielder has been a target for Arsenal throughout the summer.
