Premier League giants Manchester United have expressed their desire at the prospect of signing Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker Ruben Neves, according to reports coming from various sources. United's interest in Neves is no longer news as the Red Devils have long been linked with a move for the superstar forward since the start of last season. The Old Trafford club approached Wolves last summer about a possible move for one of their prized assets, but they hinted he was not for sale.
After losing out on the possibility of signing him last summer, they may now return for him in the coming transfer window and could finally get their man, with reports suggesting that Wolves could now be interested in allowing him to leave this time around.
Manchester United's failure to sign Neves last season saw them opt for a move for Sporting Lisbon midfielder BRUNO Fernandes instead , and everyone would currently agree that the move was the next best available option. The Daily Mail claims that one of the reasons for the reluctance Wolves expressed towards not letting Neves leave the club was because they had already sanctioned the sale of Diogo Nota to Liverpool and they were not ready to lose another star in the same window.
With United also expected to return for Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho in the summer, it's unlikely that a move for Neves will be placed as a priority. The essence of chasing the Wolves' star could be so that in case a move for Sancho does not happen, then they could have a second option.
Olé Gunnar Solksjær is expected to be handed a transfer war chest this summer and he will be looking to secure the signings of his major transfer targets ahead of next season so he can compete for major trophies.
