Manchester United 'are determined to sign Wolves star Ruben Neves'

Manchester United ‘are determined to sign Wolves star Ruben Neves this month’ after impressing showing in their shock win at Old Trafford… with Red Devils ‘lining up £35m bid’ as Ralf Rangnick looks to bolster his midfield

  • Manchester United are targeting a new midfielder in this transfer window 
  • The Red Devils are reportedly lining up a £35m bid for Wolves star Ruben Neves
  • But the Molineux outfit are said to be demanding a fee in the region of £40m 

Manchester United are plotting a £35million bid for Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves in the January transfer window, according to reports. 

The Red Devils have endured a turbulent season and are looking for a new midfielder to add to Ralf Rangnick’s options, and the Sun believe they are keen to secure a deal for Portuguese star Neves.

Neves, 24, has just two years left on his contract and recently spoke about his desire to play Champions League football – and could be tempted by the allure of playing for a club of United’s stature.

Manchester United are targeting a move for Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves, reports claim

United are willing to pay around £35m for Neves, the report adds – but says Wolves would only consider a bid of more than £40m. 

The club have been keeping tabs on Neves since the summer, it says, adding that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a big fan of the player before he was sacked. 

Neves is happy at Molineux but is unlikely to commit his future beyond the two remaining years on his deal as he looks ahead to the next stage of his career, the report goes on.

The Portuguese star impressed during Wolves’ shock win at Old Trafford on Monday night  

The former FC Porto star played the full 90 minutes in Wolves’ shock 1-0 win at Old Trafford on Monday night and is believed to have caught the eye of club officials. 

The Red Devils have been linked with a handful of midfielders this month, including RB Leipzig’s Amadou Haidara – who previously worked under Rangnick at the German club. 

Rangnick will be keen to secure some recruits amid disharmony in the dressing room, with Sportsmail reporting this week that players believe the atmosphere had been the worst it had ever been at the club.
