Wolverhampton Wanderers offer £50 million-rated Pedro Neto to Manchester United
Manchester United have been given the opportunity to sign Pedro Neto by Wolverhampton Wanderers, according to talkSPORT on Twitter (h/t Manchester Evening News). The Red Devils will have to pay £50 million to land the Portuguese.
Arsenal are after Neto and aspire to get the 22-year-old from Wolves. United will have to contend with the Gunners if they pursue the Portugal international.
Neto made his move to England in 2019, joining a Portuguese contingent at the Wanderers from Lazio. The 22-year-old is considered a great prospect.
In his first two seasons at Wolves, Neto played a prominent role under Nuno Espirito Santo. However, a knee injury hampered the youngster’s 2021/22 campaign. Bruno Lage hasn’t been able to use the 22-year-old much in his tenure with the Molineux Stadium side.
The 2022/23 campaign has seen Neto start the first three games in the Premier League. While Wolves haven’t got off to the best of starts, the Portuguese has impressed in his outings.
Neto is a versatile attacker capable of playing in various positions up front. While playing on the left-wing most of the time, the Portuguese has featured on the right-wing, as a centre-forward and a number 10.
The 22-year-old is in his fourth season with the Wanderers. The Portugal international has featured 95 times for Wolves, scoring 11 goals and providing 12 assists.
United are currently struggling for goals. None of our players have gotten off the mark this season. The only goal scored in our favour was when Alexis Mac Allister put the ball in the back of his own net. Our attackers, apart from Ronaldo, struggled to make an impact last season as well.

Wolves are demanding a lot of money for Neto. United can invest that elsewhere. Unless Bruno Lages’ side considerably lower their asking price for the 22-year-old, it’s wise for the Red Devils to look at other options.
