Man City boss Mancini: Neymar not ready for England

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini admits a deal for Santos star Neymar may be beyond them.

Mancini plans to spend big on a replacement for Mario Balotelli.

But he admitted a move for 21-year-old Brazil star Neymar is unlikely.

Mancini told the Guardian: "Neymar is a good player but he's young.

"I don't know if he's ready to play in England because the football is different. I think he will go to Barcelona or Madrid."
