I'm just going to go ahead and assume you're all familiar with Neymar by now. The Santos forward, who apparently came close to joining Chelsea last summer for a fee believed to be in the region of £25M, is being chased by virtually every major team in Europe, and his stock is even higher after starring in Brazil's win over Scotland on Sunday. Barcelona and Inter Milan are believed to be involved, and right now Neymar and Alexis Sanchez look like the two biggest prizes up for grabs over the summer.
So what do Chelsea fans really want to hear right now? How about the 19 year-old Brazilian genius singing the club's praises and saying he'd give serious thought to a move to Stamford Bridge:
Chelsea's a great club. It's a dream of every player to play at Chelsea. If one day it happens, I will be very happy to come.
When the moment comes we are going to sit with my family. We are going to think about it and discuss the options.
Last year, when Chelsea came, we sat together and we thought it wasn't the time yet. If it happens this year, we are going to sit again and are going to discuss about it."

Is it fluff? Yeah, probably, and with an asking price of around £35M Neymar being fond of Chelsea won't do us any good if we don't match it. I'm sure he'd respond in similar fashion if asked about Real Madrid or Manchester United. But it's much, much better than the alternative, and he did mention that he liked London a lot on top of all of that.
So, it's all aboard the Neymar bandwagon. I promise it won't be as obsessive as the David Luiz one (but I didn't really steer y'all wrong there now did I?).
