Manchester United are set to make one last push to sign Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves this summer. The Portugal international has been a long-term target for the club, and is highly appreciated by new manager Erik Ten Hag as well.
United previously offered £35 million for him in the January transfer window, but Wolves wanted around £40 million for their man. And this summer, the asking price could go up to around £50 million.
Ruben Neves still among the top targets for Manchester United
The Red Devils are set to undergo a total rebuild this summer. The likes of Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Juan Mata are all set to leave when their contracts expire next month. As a result, United will need to sign new players to make up the numbers and add quality to their ranks.
Ruben Neves has a contract with Wolves until 2024, and has refused to negotiate a new deal with them. As a result, it seems only a matter of time before he secures a move away to a bigger club to further his career.
Barcelona are also interested in signing Neves this summer. But, their financial problems are hindering them from going all in for the player. Manchester United are also interested in signing Frenkie de Jong from Barca, if he is available. So, it could be a swapping of midfielders between the three clubs – or a direct sale alone.
