Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves is reportedly wanted by Manchester United.

90min have claimed officials have informed new manager Bruno Lage that big sales happen this summer, including Neves and Adama Traore.

The futures of both players have been up in the air in recent months.

Duncan Castles stated a couple of months ago that the duo were two of three stars that could be offloaded – the other being Pedro Neto.

Neves is the player who has been in the news the most recently.

The 24-year-old is supposedly on Arsenal’s radar, and it seems they are selling Granit Xhaka before they go in pursuit of him.

According to 90min though, the Gunners could be facing competition from United.

They say their talisman Bruno Fernandes has given Red Devils officials a glowing reference of his international colleague.

 

Fernandes and Neves, of course, are currently together with the Portugal squad at Euro 2020.

Their first game is against Hungary on Tuesday.

Chances of big sale greater with United involved

If Wolves really are set on offloading Neves, then United’s interest is good news.

The Red Devils and the Gunners both being keen could ultimately mean Neves sells for a higher fee.

That Fernandes – who cost the club £67 million in total (BBC Sport) – has apparently thrown his backing behind a potential move perhaps applies the pressure slightly on the United board.

Ultimately, it could mean a big offer is forthcoming.
