NEW MOVE: Manchester United looking to trump Arsenal to this Premier League midfield star

Manchester United in discussions for Ruben Neves

According to Speaking on the Transfer Window Podcast (h/t The Express), Eurosport’s Dean Jones has revealed that Manchester United are currently in discussions for Wolverhampton Wanderers star Ruben Neves ahead of the 2021/22 season.

The Portuguese international is one of the Wolves’ best players and played a major role in their establishment as a Premier League team. However, his stint at the Molineux appears to be coming to an end and he could be on the move this summer.

A seasoned midfielder well versed in the English game, Neves will be an interesting signing if the move goes through. At 24, he will only get better and can benefit from playing alongside better teammates.

According to the report, Premier League rivals Arsenal are favourites to land Neves. United could however throw a spanner in the works by stealing a march for the player.

Neves meanwhile will be a cheaper alternative, costing between £35m to £40m. As things stand, it could be a direct duel between United and Arsenal for Neves. With Champions League football to offer, it can be argued that we are in this moment a more attractive proposition.
