SPANISH football expert Guillem Balague has insisted Neymar will not be joining Chelsea.
The Barcelona superstar has been linked with the Premier League leaders over the last few days.
Owner Roman Abramovich is said to have negotiated a stunning £155m move for the Brazilian – only for Antonio Conte to cancel the transfer.
But Balague can’t see it happening.
He was asked: “Anything in these neymar to Chelsea rumours?”
Not at all. He will be at Barcelona next season https://t.co/t2vIhT5J9D

And replied: “Not at all.
“He will be at Barcelona next season.”
Manchester United were also keen on Neymar but their hopes of signing him looked to have ended when he penned a new contract last year.
Chief executive Ed Woodward spent months working on a deal but the forward decided to stay at the Nou Camp.
