Chelsea have been warned against signing Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar amid reports the 31 year old Brazilian has been offered to Chelsea.

According to former Aston Villa and Liverpool attacker Stan Collymore, the Blues should avoid what has the potential to be another Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang-style saga.

“Neither Manchester club should take him and Chelsea definitely don’t need him,” Collymore told CaughtOffside.

“I think Neymar is a fantastic player but joining Chelsea would be an awful move in my opinion because the Blues’ project is to build for the future and if Neymar were to come to Stamford Bridge, you could just imagine much of Graham Potter’s time in front of the media would be taken up by questions on the Brazilian. That’s the last thing he would need, but it’d also be the last thing any of the other players need.

“Not only that, but Neymar’s antics are at times reminiscent of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and look how that one’s turned out, so just steer clear, Chelsea.”
