Would Neymar and Chelsea be a good fit?
The question on everyone’s lips is whether Neymar will choose the European champions over Barcelona. If the 20 year old did choose Chelsea how would he fit into Roberto Di Matteo’s system.
Di Matteo loves playing 4-2-3-1 and with the form of Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Oscar it would have to be Fernando Torres who would drop to the bench for the Brazilian superstar. Chelsea keep the ball on the floor, looking for killer balls through defences and this would suit the frontman who possesses natural pace and incredible skill.
It has been questioned whether the short forward would struggle against teams like Stoke and the rugged defences of the English Premier league. At international level he has shown what a true talent he is having scored 17 goals in just 26 games for Brazil at the tender age of 20. The youngster has 121 goals in under 200 games in all competitions and with his talent he would find his feet in the premier league in no time.
Neymar is currently the 7th highest paid footballer so Roman Abramovich may have to be offering wages that match Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to secure this wonder kid.
