Neymar linked with Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle but ‘wouldn’t play’ at Tottenham and ‘wouldn’t get on with Antonio Conte’
Most clubs would jump at the chance to sign Neymar, but not Tottenham, according to talkSPORT’s Darren Ambrose.
Kylian Mbappe committing his future to Paris Saint-Germain, plus recent comments by club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi have sent rumours surrounding Neymar’s future into overdrive.
RMC Sport reports that the only clubs who could afford the Brazilian are Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle should he leave.
Spurs aren’t in the conversation but maybe that’s for the best, with Ambrose citing an inevitable clash with Antonio Conte as to why Neymar would struggle for game time in north London.
Asked if he’d have Neymar at Tottenham, Ambrose said: “No, I wouldn’t.
“I don’t think he’d play to be honest. I don’t think he’d get on with Antonio Conte.
“I’m not saying it because of his ability, he’s a talented footballer, I’m saying it because of what I think he’d bring to Tottenham.”
It’s unlikely Neymar will be met with that awkward scenario with talkSPORT’s transfer expert Alex Crook tipping him to stay at PSG.

Crook said: “He’s on huge wages and that’s why they’re going to struggle to shift him.
“There’s a report in France where they’re clearly trying to push him out the door, saying the only clubs that could afford him were Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle.
“Absolutely no chance does Eddie Howe go for Neymar. He’s a million miles away from the player that Eddie Howe signs. Chelsea might just be crazy enough and I don’t see Manchester United going down that road with this rebuild they’ve got.
“I think he’ll stay at PSG.”
