Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a potential £50 million-plus move for Wolverhampton Wanderers’ star Pedro Neto.
The Sun have claimed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on the Portugal winger, who has enjoyed a fantastic personal campaign despite the struggles of the team.
There have been very few games this season where Neto hasn’t been the standout player for Nuno Espirito Santo.
The 21-year-old has really stepped up to the plate after Diogo Jota was sold, and constantly tries his heart out, as well as obviously showing amazing quality on the ball.
His performances appear to have led to interest from United, who undoubtedly need a new right-sided winger.
Jadon Sancho is thought to be their main target, but Borussia Dortmund have had a firm grip on the England international, and could well price them out of a move once again this summer – especially if Erling Haaland departs.
News of United’s supposed interest in Neto has reached their supporters on social media.
It seems that many of them would love to see the youngster tearing down the wings at Old Trafford on the basis of what they have seen from him at Molineux this season.
Neto is so good

I absolutely love Neto by the way.
This would be the kind of out of the box deal I wouldn’t expect United to do.
Interesting if true. https://t.co/7QXjWjrHRB
