Pele has advised City transfer target Neymar to head to Spain rather than the Premier League, according to today’s media reports.
The Mirror claims that the three-time World Cup winner sees Barcelona as the preferable destination for the young Brazilian star when he makes his expected move to Europe in 2014.
“Pele claimed Neymar will be better suited to football in England than in Spain, with Barca his ideal destination,” writes the paper’s David McDonnell.
"’The game is tougher in England, Italy and Germany, because the referees usually let play go on,’ said Pele. ‘Barcelona would be ideal for him.’
Meanwhile, James Dickenson writes in the Express that it is Zlatan Ibrahimovic that the Blues could miss out on, because he is eyeing a move to Bayern Munich.
“The 31-year-old striker is undeniably high-maintenance - exhibited by his recent red card during European competition for PSG against Valencia - but on the other side of the coin showed his exceptional talents when he struck four times against England in a friendly last November.
“That performance saw rumours of interest from Manchester City initially surface, but it appears Ibrahimovic would prefer his next move to be to the Bundesliga.”
