Neymar has already named four Premier League clubs he would sign for amid PSG exit speculation
| Last updated
Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has named four Premier League clubs that would interest him should the Brazilian's expected exit from the Parc des Princes materialise this summer.
The 31-year-old is looking to depart the reigning Ligue 1 champions this summer having been targeted by sections of their fanbase who have gone as far as protesting outside the forward's house.
Although PSG look set to lift yet another league title come the end of the season, Christophe Galtier's side will stumble towards the championship having been underwhelming for their usual standards in the French top flight.
Additionally, the Parisian outfit will go another year without their much-wanted Champions League having been eliminated by Bayern Munich in the round of 16. They were also beaten 3-1 by Marseille in the round of 16 in the French Cup in February.
It is expected that Neymar's long-term teammate Lionel Messi will almost certainly leave France this summer upon the expiration of his contract and the Brazilian now appears as though he wants to follow to suit.
The 31-year-old has previously insisted that he is happy in Paris but, according to Le Parisien, the winger has changed his mind and will now look to leave the Parc des Princes this summer.
Numerous Premier League outfits have been linked with Neymar in the past with the most recent clubs including Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle United.
However, the Brazilian has gone on record to say that a move to England would tempt him, but only if a select handful of clubs made an approach.
“The Premier League is a championship that amazes me," the forward said while at Barcelona. "“I like the playing style and the teams. And who knows? Someday, I would like to play [in] it, yes. I admire Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool —these are the teams that are always there fighting."
With 18 goals and 17 assists in 29 appearances for the Parisians this season, it's been a far from disappointing campaign for Neymar on a personal level and every club in Europe will be well aware of the Brazilian's capabilities.
The world record fee of £200million that saw the attacker join PSG from Barcelona in 2017 remains the current record but with Neymar now 31 and having just two years left on his current contract, a transfer out of Paris wouldn't cost near that figure.
A move to any of the aforementioned quartet of Premier League clubs would undoubtedly improve each, although it currently appears as though only Arsenal and Manchester United will be competing in the Champions League next season, a factor that will certainly be a lure for Neymar.
As for Chelsea, the Brazilian would be reunited with former PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino, who looks set to take over at Stamford Bridge, while Liverpool may opt against a move with an ageing squad one of their primary issues to solve this summer.
There is certainly potential for Neymar's exit from Paris being one of the transfer sagas of the upcoming summer transfer window.
