Friends insist 'Neymar would choose Chelsea, Arsenal over Manchester clubs'

Friends insist if Neymar is to move to England, the PSG star would prefer to join a London club.

The PSG star had 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.

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.

A source close to the player told the Daily Express: "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.

"The last time he kept ringing me up and begging me to join him because he loved it so much.

"He kept saying 'this place is amazing, this place is amazing'. He just loves London."
