Forget Neymar; Chelsea should focus on Hazard and Sanchez

If Roman left you in charge of transfers, would you spend £40m on Neymar or on Sanchez and Hazard?

Santos are not ready to accept bids for Neymar from Chelsea – according to Neymar’s agent, Santos rejected our £35m bid for him last August.                                                                                                                                                                                           
If our club wants Neymar, they will have to buy out his contract at £40m. Honestly, it will be foolish for our club to spend that much money on Neymar, especially when we can get both Hazard and Sanchez for the same price.                                                                                                                                                                         
Let me share the little I know of Neymar – Last season Neymar scored 34 goals in 61 appearances in all competitions. This season he has scored 14 goals in 16 appearances in all competitions; the Brazilian season is still ongoing – I will admit that his stats are impressive for a 19 year old. I believe he has the potential to be a great player but he is worth £40m?                                                                                                                                                                             
Santos knows Neymar is not worth £40m, they would have sold him for £25m if they had a good replacement for him. Santos wants something greater than money; they are desperate to win the Copa Libertadores.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
The last time they won it, it was with Pele back in 1963. Santos believes their current squad is good enough to repeat that achievement – Neymar is key player in that squad.                                                                                                                                                    
If we are patient, we can get Neymar for half of £40m after Copa Libertadores competition. How hard a wait can it be? We got enough strikers to the job until the end of the Copa Libertadores.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
Let us forget about Neymar for now – Brazil always produces new talent; Neymar could be old news in six months time. Who knows, we might find a similar talent for a much affordable price.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
If the club has £40m to spend, it should be on Hazard and Sanchez. Hazard is a fast player with great technical ability – Chelsea could sign him for £18m. Hazard is comfortable as an attacking midfielder; as well as being able to play on both wings. He is very good at creating goal-scoring opportunities and was the Ligue 1 player of the year for 2010-2011.                                                                                                                                                                                         
Alexis Sanchez is the solution to our right wing problems – he has excellent ball control, superb crossing ability and great speed. Sanchez would cost us around £22m – The money needed to sign Hazard and Sanchez comes to £40m.                                                                                                                                                         
If Roman left you in charge of transfers, would you spend £40m on Neymar or on Sanchez and Hazard?
