Man Utd are considering Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves as an alternative to Frenkie de Jong, who remains club’s No 1 target; United manager Erik Ten Hag has been searching for a new midfielder ahead of the upcoming Premier League season
Manchester United are considering alternatives to Frenkie de Jong as Erik ten Hag looks to resolve his search for midfield reinforcements ahead of the new Premier League season.
United have a long-standing interest in Ruben Neves, who has made 212 appearances for Wolves, scoring 24 times.
Speaking in April, Wolves boss Bruno Lage says the club have slapped a £100m price tag on Neves amid rumoured interest from United, Arsenal and Tottenham.
“What I know is we have a special player here with us,” Lage said.
“What he is doing this season is very good. I think also the way we play, he can show a better Ruben, and also the way he plays puts our team on a different level.
“When you have that player, the best thing to do is improve his salary and years of contract. But who knows, when you have a top player like him in that specific position, that can defend and attack, and is a top professional and a great man, the big teams are there with £100million to buy these kinds of players.”
Neves has been linked with United for several months, but the club has spent much of the transfer window chasing Ten Hag’s former Ajax player De Jong.
