Man City boss Mancini admits defeat in Neymar pursuit

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini admitted that Neymar is likely to move to Spain should he decide to leave Santos.

The City coach believes the Seleção star is too inexperienced for the rigours of English football and says the player would be more suited to the more technical La Liga. 

"Neymar is a good player, he's young, but I don't know if he's ready to play in England because the football is totally different.

"I think he will go to Barcelona or Madrid where the football is more technical. But Cavani and Falcao would work in England. They have experience. Both players are 26, 27. They are good enough to play in England."

Instead, Manchester City are likely to turn their attention to Napoli's Edinson Cavani with Mancini an admirer of the Uruguayan.

"I like him, but all the world wants him. There are big players. I don't know what can happen. [Luis] Suárez plays for a top team like Liverpool. Cavani plays for Napoli.

There's [Radamel] Falcao but, again, all the managers like him."
