Thiago Silva is eager to welcome his close friend Neymar to Chelsea amid the uncertainty surrounding the winger’s future at Paris Saint-Germain.
Chelsea are one of the few clubs in the world that could afford Neymar and they are in the market for a winger, prompting his international team-mate to express his desire to play alongside his friend at club level.
Silva, who previously played with Neymar at PSG before joining Chelsea, told Globo:
He has to go to Chelsea. If he is about to leave [PSG], then he must go there.
If it happens, then the expectation is the best possible one. We don’t even need to talk about Neymar’s ability. Besides that, he is a super friend.
I hope this happens instead of only being something on the news, but I don’t know anything about it.
