PSG and Chelsea have both been tipped to lure Casemiro away from Real Madrid when the transfer window reopens in the summer.

The Brazil international has emerged as a key part of Los Blancos’ squad, regularly lining up alongside Toni Kroos and Luka Modric in the middle of the park.

But Spanish outlet Don Balon claim Chelsea are now ready to accelerate plans to sign the 25-year-old at the end of the season.

And PSG talisman Neymar is the reason why.

The Brazilian has reportedly been trying to persuade his compatriot to join him at the Parc des Princes.
