Mauricio Pochettino makes Neymar transfer decision
Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has decided against signing Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
The Brazil international has revealed his desire to leave Les Parisiens in the current transfer window and the Blues have been linked with him.
The Brazilian's entourage were recently in contact with the Blues, but Standard Sport claim that a deal is unlikely to materialise.
Pochettino had a good relationship with Neymar when he was Paris Saint-Germain's manager, but he is not considering a reunion.
The Blues have changed their transfer policy over the past six months, and the focus is currently on building a young and quality squad.
Pochettino does not want to make an exception for Neymar, and the Blues hierarchy are likely to back the Argentine with the decision.
Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly looked at the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar last summer, but the transfer strategy has now changed.
Pochettino is eyeing four more signings before the transfer deadline. A defensive midfielder is one of the top priorities for him.
