Wolverhampton Wanderers’s Pedro Neto has reportedly emerged as a summer target for Manchester United in the attack as an alternative to long-term interests Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho, but would still cost at least £50 million.
The 21-year-old star has been one of the few bright sparks in a disappointing campaign for Wolves, scoring five goals and registering five assists in 29 Premier League appearances.
With Grealish and Sancho both likely to be valued close to £100 million in the transfer market, the Portuguese star could represent a cheaper option for United as they look to add a right winger to their roster.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been looking to fill that position for a while, with Borussia Dortmund’s Sancho the long-expected cure for his problem, but with BVB not moving on their £100 million valuation, the England international is unlikely to move.
Jack is certain to quit Aston Villa at some point, and it may well be this summer, but Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are also interested in the player’s signature and could beat their local rivals to the Villa talisman.
Pedro could be next in line on the United transfer wish list, with the Sun reporting that the Red Devils are also keeping an eye on Sporting’s Pedro Goncalves and Leeds United’s Raphinha.
