Manchester United are looking to strengthen the midfield. British media reports that Ruben Neves landed in the crosshairs of the “Red Devils”.
The helpline is the real Achilles’ heel of the Old Trafford team. Scott McTominay has erratic performances, Fred is below expectations and Nemanja Matić is now in his age. In addition, Donny van de Beek watches most of the games from the bench, and Paul Pogba has still not renewed his contract, which will expire on July 1.
Already during the summer window it was announced that Manchester could break the bank into a new midfielder. At that time, Declan Rice was associated with the move to the Theater of Dreams, but he ultimately remained in West Hame.
Now the website “Talksport.com” reports that United officials have an interest in Ruben Neves. The club sees the Portuguese as a future pillar of the second line.
Neves has been representing the colors of Wolverhampton since 2017. Together with the “Wolves” team, the quarterback advanced to the Premier League, where it is already playing for the fourth season.
British journalists say that the team from Molineux is ready to sell the 24-year-old. Wolverhampton, however, expects a minimum of £ 50m. There is still debate in the offices at Old Trafford as to whether it is worth spending so much on a Portuguese representative. It is possible that the final decision on the possible strengthening of the aid will be made only in the summer window.
Neves has made 19 appearances in the current competition. He scored one goal and one assist in them. His contract with “Wolves” is valid until 2024.
