United have made a dreadful start to the new season, losing their opening two matches.

Erik ten Hag has only been able to bring in three players so far.

There is major concern among the fanbase that the new manager has been left short, and it could be a very busy new couple of weeks at Old Trafford.

Neto is apparently a player on their radar.

They are also looking at Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven.

Romano has now provided some information on the potential for Neto to make a move to United, and it’s a fairly positive update for Wolves fans.

He told CaughtOffside: “There’s been a lot written about Pedro Neto’s future at Wolves, including links with big names like Arsenal and Chelsea.

“My understanding, however, is that so far the situation around Pedro Neto is still quiet. There are no advanced negotiations.

“Wolves are focused on completing the Matheus Nunes deal and then evaluating Pedro’s future in the coming days. It’s not an advanced deal yet, but could be an interesting one in the final days.”

Wolves need to stand firm over Pedro Neto – he’s a gamechanger

It could be that Wolves need to make a significant sale in the next couple of weeks to balance the books a little.

But Wanderers must ensure that player is not Neto.

He has looked fantastic in pre-season, and really lively against Fulham and Leeds United.

Wolves fans could not get enough of him when he was carrying the team at times in the 2020/21 season.

Potentially he could be in for a brilliant season with Wolves in this new system.

Officials simply cannot entertain interest in him if the goal is to try and achieve European football come the end of the season.

Earlier this year, Lage branded Neto ‘one of our best players’, and the manager would surely fight tooth and nail to keep hold of him.
