Payet warns Man City target Neymar against Premier League move

Marseille ace Dimitri Payet has urged PSG star Neymar not to move to England.

Manchester City are expected to challenge Real Madrid for the former Barcelona dazzler this summer.

But ex-West Ham playmaker Payet warned Neymar over his complaints about rough tackling: "He better not go and play in England then!

“I think that every team talk the opposing coach gives must focus on him.

"Unhappily, he takes the kind of blows that make him lose his rhythm because it's one of the ways that he can be stopped. He's a victim of his talent.

“It happens to other players, like Florian Thauvin [of Marseille] and Nabil Fekir [of Lyon]. All the players who are specialists in dribbling and committing defenders are liable to be kicked."
