England coach Neville believes his unsettled former United team-mate is far better off staying at Old Trafford.
Neville said: "I played with Wayne for many years. He's a fantastic footballer.
"Personally, with my allegiances, I'd never recommend anyone leave United because I believe it is a great stage to play football and you can achieve what you want there."
Speaking on Talksport, Neville added: "I've seen David Beckham and other big players leave United and it really is something that comes down to the individual and the club.
