Manchester United is interested in João Neves, whom Bruno Fernandes also wants. However, money may stand in the way, as Fabrizio Romano reports.
Manchester United will look for reinforcements in the winter. The first part of the season performed by Erik ten Hag’s players has not been impressive and the team is only sixth in the table. As if that wasn’t enough, he is one step away from being eliminated from the Champions League.
Therefore, reinforcements are needed. In this context, it is primarily a stopper, but also a defensive midfielder.
In the context of the second of these options, the name of João Neves came to the fore. His teammate from the Portuguese national team, Bruno Fernandes, recently spoke highly of him.
– Honestly, I would really like him to join Manchester United. He’s a guy who has incredible quality. However, the decision will be his, he admitted in an interview with sport.tv.
The irreplaceable Fabrizio Romano decided to look into the matter. Is there any chance for this move to come to fruition?
At the moment, Benfica has no intention of getting rid of this player. In fact, the only way to acquire him is to pay a transfer fee of EUR 120 million.-
Although it is doubtful, if the Red Devils enter the game, it would be their transfer record. So far, Paul Pogba has come to Old Trafford for the highest sum, costing EUR 105 million.
João Neves, on the other hand, played a total of 18 games this season, in which he had a goal and two assists.
The contract is valid until June 30, 2028.
