“I’ve always said I wouldn’t want him near my club” – Jason Cundy rejects idea of Chelsea signing Brazilian forward


Former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has advised his old side from signing Paris Saint- Germain (PSG) superstar Neymar , who he has described as "overrated."

 GOAL has claimed that the Ligue 1 champions are not against the idea of selling the 30-year- old forward. They had signed him from Barcelona for a world-record fee of €222 million in 2017.

Numerous reports have linked Neymar with a move to the Premier League , with Thomas Tuchel's side named as potential suitors.

 However, speaking to TalkSPORT , Cundy claimed that he does not want the Blues to go for the attacker as he is not a team player. The pundit stated:

“Well, you know my thoughts on Neymar, I think he’s overrated. Good player, but overrated. It’s all about him. Eden Hazard was a team player.

“Neymar has been linked with Chelsea for a while, I’ve always said I wouldn’t want him near my club. I don’t think he’s the sort of player that Chelsea need.

Is he a good player? Is he talented? Yes, I don’t doubt that for a second. But I would not want him near Chelsea.”

The Brazil international has endured a mixed spell during his five seasons at the Parc des Princes. He was even jeered by his own supporters following his side's failure to progress past the Champions League second round last term.
