Transfer News: Manchester United genuinely interested in Ruben Neves

According to transfer news from Express, Manchester United are genuinely interested in signing Ruben Neves. Our star man Bruno Fernandes is also keen on seeing his Portuguese compatriot making the move. United are looking to solve their midfield puzzle with the addition of a defensive midfielder.

These are optimistic times for Manchester United in the transfer window. Tom Heaton has already been signed while Jadon Sancho is close to being announced officially.

United’s interest in Neves is genuine

However, it would seem that they will go after one more signing and it will be in midfield. Dean Jones from Eurosport spoke about how United’s interest in Ruben Neves is genuine and that his addition would please Fernandes.

“That final position will be in midfield. It’s just a case of is it Ruben Neves? Is it a defensive midfielder? It’s all going to depend and it would really give us an insight into what Solskjaer’s mentality is going into the season and what type of football we can expect from him.

“Is he sticking with that McTominay and Fred? Or is he going to be more open than that, with a ball-player like Neves that can come in. I’m told that the Neves pursuit is genuine. And while Arsenal are the most active in trying to get that over the line, United are still in the conversation. Bruno Fernandes is obviously very keen for Neves to join and the club are aware of that.”

The Portuguese international is one of the best young midfielders in the league. A seasoned midfielder too, the 24-year-old is at the right point in his career to take the next step. He is yet to reach his prime and United could have him for the best years of his career.
