Neymar has done it again folks. He’s stirring up the transfer rumors and we’re hear to eat it right up. In a recent interview with Fox Sports, he was asked about players he admires and would like to play with. And his reply?
“I would like to play with Hazard, he has a style similar to mine. We would cause Havoc together!”
Hello Roman? Mr. Abramovich are you listening?!
Neymar is clearly ready to make his dream premier league move to none other than Chelsea FC! Get the check book ready baby! Alright maybe I’m dreaming over here….
This sounds more like a call to a certain Florentino Pérez. In case you’re unaware who that is, Pérez is the current President of Real Madrid and deliverer of galacticos. To simplify things, the man loves a big money, big name signing more than maybe anything else in this world. Cristiano Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo, Kaka, Gareth Bale, David Beckham, the list could keep going but you get the point.
Hazard has been heavily linked to be making a move or Real Madrid since last summers transfer window while Neymar has been linked with a move to Madrid since the moment he left Barcelona. Is it just coincidence that he chose Hazard as the player he’d love to play with? Maybe. Or maybe it’s a clear come and get me plea from the Brazilian superstar himself.
Honestly, from a Chelsea fan perspective this quote was basically a gut punch. Losing Hazard has been a nightmare scenario that seems to be drawing closer and closer each day that passes. However from a neutrals point of view, This would be a dream come true.
The idea of watching Neymar and Hazard slice opposing defenses apart and drive fullbacks all over the world crazy would be a spectacle every single week. Throw in a competent striker for them to feed off and it could easily rival some of the best attacking trio’s the footballing world has ever seen.
If you ask me, It’s no coincidence that this quote comes out right as Real Madrid is coming off one of their worst seasons in a long time and look ready to throw money at every single problem in their squad.
So the question is do you guys think Pérez will give in and after both stars to jump start a new galactico era? Or do you think one or both are unattainable in today market?
Also do you think these two can co-exist in the same team?
Let us know what you think!
