Nedum Onuoha, a former Manchester City defender, said of the PSG superstar: “They don’t need him! He would impede the progress of Phil Foden and Jack Grealish at Manchester City and it would be a MISTAKE to sign him.” In recent weeks, Neymar has been associated with a transfer to Manchester City. City has already brought in a number of well-known players this summer. They shouldn’t be trying to sign Neymar, according to Nedum Onouha.

Nedum Onuoha, a former defender for Manchester City, thinks his old team would be wrong to sign PSG sensation Neymar.
Even though City has already completed a number of significant acquisitions this summer, they have just been connected to a further significant acquisition.
Neymar has had a rocky five years with PSG and was even jeered by his own supporters last season after another embarrassing Champions League loss. Over the past several days, Neymar has been closely associated with a move to Manchester City. When asked by ESPN FC if he thought City should pursue Neymar, he responded, “No. It’s not, though, because he’s a bad player. They don’t need him, in my opinion. particularly if he will play on the left. Jack Grealish and Phil Foden are also present. It doesn’t make sense to introduce someone who would impede the growth of those two guys. I know he has the credentials and everything. However, City continues to expand, aiming to sign younger [players] whenever they can. It relates to the idea of futureproofing. Although Neymar is a fantastic player, moving to City at this time would not be the appropriate move. He will attract a large audience and score many goals and assists. But City have this attitude where everyone is moving in the same direction and where hard effort and knowledge are more important than tricks and skills. It doesn’t seem like a wise move to me. It’s off the table for me. Nedum Onuoha feels that if City were to sign him, they would be making a mistake.
