Neymar would prefer a move to Arsenal or Chelsea than to Manchester United or Manchester City. That’s according to a ‘source’ close to the player who believes the Brazilian is keen to move to London.

Neymar is currently with Paris Saint-Germain although there are strong rumours he could leave the French club next summer. Real Madrid remain favourites to sign the former Barcelona striker but the Sunday Express claims Neymar is captivated by the lure of London.

“He loves England – but mainly London. He has been there three or four times in the last 12 months,” somebody described as being close to the Brazilian superstar told the paper.

“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.”

A move to Arsenal can be ruled out if only because the Gunners cannot afford the £200million or so it would cost to sign Neymar. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich would be pushing out the boat over Uefa’s Financial Fair Play regulations before a move to west London could be considered.
