Chelsea have been linked with a move for PSG star Neymar.
PSG have made it clear that they no longer need the Brazilian, and are open to selling him.
Neymar was booed by the PSG supporters in the wake of their Champions League exit last season, and is no longer indispensable at the club.
The 30-year-old Brazilian star played under Thomas Tuchel when he was in charge of the Paris club, and PSG are hoping Tuchel will show an interest in the superstar.
Chelsea defender Thiago Silva has urged his countryman and former PSG teammate to make a switch to Stamford Bridge.
However, signing Neymar won’t be an easy feat, as he currently earns £600k per week.
When asked about Neymar’s situation at an event in Recife on Tuesday, Silva said: “You have to go to Chelsea.
“If it happens, it will be for the best.
“He needs no comments… so far, I don’t know anything, but I hope it comes to fruition.”
Just last week, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi appeared to have sent an indirect message which indicated that Neymar had no future at PSG.
“Dreams are one thing, reality is another,” Al-Khelaifi told Le Parisien.
“Perhaps we should change our slogan… dream bigger is good, but today we must be realistic, we don’t want flashy, bling-bling anymore, it’s the end of the glitter.”
In a separate interview with Marca, Al-Khelaifi refused to rule out the prospect of the forward leaving PSG.
“We can’t talk about it in the media, some will come and some will go, but these are private negotiations,” said PSG’s president.
“We want young, talented, committed players with a winning mentality, people who want to die for this badge
“We want to be stronger collectively, to play as a team and for the club to be above all.”
