They were the two Brazilian players that dominated the headlines all summer.
According to Brendan Rodgers, the Blues had serious interest in Neymar and Philippe Coutinho during his time at Stamford Bridge.
Lee Congerton, former chief scout at Chelsea, had watched the duo play in Brazil and the Blues wanted to bring both players to west London.
However, the moves never materialised and the club missed out on signing the talented duo.
Rodgers, speaking to the Scottish Sun, said: “When we were at Chelsea we were aware of Neymar and Coutinho.
“Lee came back from a trip and mentioned them. Neymar was in first teams young, he wanted to stay in Brazil before moving.
“He has everything. He’s like a motorbike, he’s so fast and balanced, left foot, right foot.
“I love his hunger. He’s a worker.
“He’s come out of the shadows a bit, and obviously felt like he wanted to be the main man at PSG. Neymar is a massive talent.”
