Chelsea looked into the possibility of signing Barcelona superstar Neymar this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail claim that reports coming out of the Brazilian media suggest that Neymar has given the green-light to a move to Paris-Saint Germain, after the Ligue 1 heavyweights met his £195M release clause.

PSG were not the only club in the race to sign the Brazilian international, however. The Daily Mail report that both Chelsea and Manchester United also held discussions over taking Neymar to Stamford Bridge.

However, as per the Daily Mail, neither side were willing to meet his monstrous release clause, paving the way for PSG to secure his signature.

There is a dire need for attacking reinforcements at Chelsea, but spending £195M on one player, no matter how good they are, is probably not the answer to our problems.

Even in the modern day, inflated transfer market, you could still sign three or four top quality players for that figure.
