Gary Neville: Wolves star Jose Sa Premier League's best summer signing

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has named Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa as the Premier League’s best summer signing.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper has seven Premier League clean sheets to his name so far this season, five of which have come in the last seven games.

Only Edouard Mendy (8), Aaron Ramsdale (9), Alisson (9) and Ederson (10) have registered more clean sheets than Sa so far this season.

The 28-year-old has conceded 14 goals from his 18 Premier League games.

Following last night’s 1-1 draw between Newcastle United and Manchester United, Sky Sports pundits Jamie Carragher and Neville gave out some half season awards on Monday Night Football.

Gary Neville revealed that he had changed his best summer signing decision from Cristiano Ronaldo to Jose Sa, who cost Wolves £6.85 million in the summer of 2021 (Sky Sports).

Neville said: “The signing of the season properly is Ronaldo for what he has brought to the Premier League, but the kid at Wolves, I was flipping between the pair earlier, but he’s only conceded 14 goals from 18 games.

“The Wolves goalkeeper has had a massive impact on their season and at this moment in time Manchester United are struggling.”

The former England and Manchester United full-back also spoke about how he felt his old side could be ‘found out’ by Wolves in the upcoming clash at Old Trafford on Monday.

Neville said that several of Manchester United’s players do not work hard enough out of possession and that some of the worrying signs that cost Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his job were already creeping back in.

The 46-year-old felt that Bruno Lage’s side could punish Ralf Rangnick’s men if the Reds produced another abject display.
