Manchester United have reportedly been offered Wolves winger Pedro Neto.
90min claim this afternoon that the 23-year-old could be an option for the Red Devils.
They suggest that Wolves spending big on Nathan Collins, Goncalo Guedes and Matheus Nunes may force the club into selling one of their top assets.
Nunes is to become Wolves’ third new signing of the window, with Wolves breaking their transfer record to the tune of £42 million.
Neto – who is represented by Jorge Mendes like Cristiano Ronaldo – was arguably one of Wolves’ best performers in pre-season.
And he has made a bright start to 2022/23 and perhaps ought to have scored against Fulham on Saturday.
Wolves fans are expecting big things from Neto this season, after he returned from a broken patella last season.
It was all about building up his match fitness last term. But fans are now hoping to see the 2020/21 version on Neto make a return.
United’s interest in Neto comes amid a very challenging time for them.
Under Erik ten Hag, United have lost their first two games and are currently bottom of the Premier League.
They have brought in just three players so far – Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez.
Pedro Neto to Manchester United is surely not happening
This would be a real surprise, and something that would really anger the fans.
Neto has looked brilliant in recent weeks, and it’s possible he could enjoy a fantastic season in Wolves’ new system.
Fosun are backing Lage in the transfer market, and the squad could soon be looking very healthy indeed.
United may well throw a lot of money at Wolves to try and convince them to sell.
But if that happens then officials must not be tempted. Neto is a potential gamechanger for Wanderers.
Cashing in on him would be taking a big step backwards, after taking several forwards over the past few weeks.
Ideally no one will be departing Molineux from here. But if anyone absolutely needs selling to offset the spending this summer, it should probably be Morgan Gibbs-White, since there’s been talk of him being valued at £40 million.
