Chelsea legend Vialli backing AVB to convince Neymar

Chelsea icon Gianluca Vialli hopes they can win the race for Santos star Neymar.

Real Madrid are believed to be Neymar's preferred destination but Vialli is hoping new Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas can convince him to make the move to Stamford Bridge instead.

"I've watched him many times on TV playing for Santos and I like him," Vialli told talkSPORT. "He's a bit flashy at times like Cristiano Ronaldo but he's very effective.

"He works really hard for the team. He's only young but comes across as a very mature guy already. I think he would be a tremendous signing for Chelsea Football Club.

"Santos is full of great players like Ganso and Danilo but Neymar would be tremendous for Chelsea."
