Neymar would rather move to Arsenal or Chelsea rather than one of the Manchester giants, Express Sport has revealed.

The PSG star got Manchester City fans excited in the summer when he reiterated his desire to play under Pep Guardiola.

But Neymar is unlikely to ever swap Paris for Manchester – because he is in love with London.

Express Sport understands the Brazilian, 25, has privately told friends he would rather move to Chelsea or Arsenal than United or City – if he was ever to join the Premier League.

Neymar isn’t fluent in English but he is learning and his language skills are improving.

A source close to the player told Express Sport: “He loves England – but mainly London. He has been there three or four times in the last 12 months.

“He says there is always something about London.

“He kept saying ‘this place is amazing, this place is amazing’. He just loves London.”

Neymar arrived at PSG from Barcelona a year ago for £200million – the biggest transfer fee in history.

He signed a contract which runs until 2022 but it’s believed Neymar will not see out his deal.

The Brazilian, who flopped at the World Cup in Russia, isn’t against a move back to Spain and it seems more likely La Liga – and not the Premiership – will be his next destination.
