Rúben Neves is the number 1 transfer targets of coach Erik ten Hag if he is appointed as manager of Manchester United.
The Red Devils have tried to sign the Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C.’s midfielder in recent transfers but failed.
Ten Hag will push to bring Rúben Neves to Old Trafford.
The 52-year-old coach has final talks to manage Man United in the next few weeks as a long-term replacement for Ralf Rangnick.
Ten Hag has been monitoring Rúben Neves‘ progress since he played for Porto and thinks he will be a vital addition to solving United’s problems.
Neves joined Wolves in 2017 and helped them get promoted from the Championship to the Premier League. His current contract with the Wolves is valid for 2 years. However, the Portuguese player said he wanted to play in the Champions League and is delaying signing an extension with Wolves. Wolves accept that they could lose Neves this summer.
Portuguese football agent – Jorge Mendes could play an important role in this deal. He is not only the agent of Neves but also of star Cristiano Ronaldo.
Man United’s difficulty now is that if they are not in the top 4 of the Premier League to participate in the Champions League, then Neves will definitely choose other clubs like Barcelona or AC Milan, who will be in the Champions League in next season.
