Manchester United dealt blow in pursuit of midfield target

Posted by

Manchester United have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves.

Neves has undoubtedly been one of Wolves best players since signing from Porto. The Portuguese star played a pivotal role in getting Wolves promoted to the Premier League.

At 25 years old, Neves could be considering taking the next step in his career, and according to Sky Sports, Manchester United have shown an interest in him this summer.

However, the report claims that Wolves are growing increasingly confident that they will keep hold of Neves going into the new season, and would like to talk to him about a new contract.

With Manchester United losing Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic this summer, it’s no surprise to see them pursuing a midfielder in the current transfer window.

However, they may now have to consider alternative options, with Neves likely to stay at Wolves ahead of the new season.

With the Premier League kicking off in the next few days, they may need to act fast if they want to bolster their options before the first game.

  1. Same old Man Utd.Chase the wind until the 11th hour and then realize they are either priced out of the market for targets that were more accessible earlier in the transfer window or unable to convince players to sign who may have been swayed had they moved earlier.With 4 full backs on the books and six centre-backs, those positions were hardly short on man power.Quality yes, but not numbers.However,true to form, Utd cover every area except midfield where the need is most dire.One serious injury for an already thin area and Ten Haag will be in hot water early on.This fable of De Jong playing for a club he has consistently rejected might cost us dearly this season. The more things change, the more they stay the same…
