GARY NEVILLE admitted he would have played for arch-rivals Arsenal if Manchester United decided to sell him.
The former defender, 45, spent his entire career at Old Trafford, coming through the academy as part of the Class of '92 before making 602 first-team appearances.
He won 16 major trophies under Sir Alex Ferguson's guidance in a career that spanned 19 years and saw him earn 85 England caps.
But speaking to Sky Sports' Off Script, the pundit revealed there were four teams he willingly could have joined should he have been let go – and three he would never, ever have signed for.
The Manchester United legend said: "For myself, leaving never once entered my head. My longest contract negotiation was three meetings; they were normally done inside one or two meetings, and they were always long contracts.
"I’d made the decision quite early in my 30s that if Sir Alex had come and told me my time was up, I wouldn’t have played for anyone else. I was fortunate in that sense.
"However, if he’d come to me at say the age of 28, and told me my time was up, of course I would have played for another Premier League club.
"Who would I have played for? You can rule out three: I’d have never have played for City, Liverpool or Leeds. Not in a million years.
"I don’t feel anything bad towards the players who did that, but me personally, I couldn’t have done it. The rivalry is just too much.
