Portuguese international Ruben Neves has been on the radar of Manchester United over the past years and this summer could be the right time for the Red Devils to swoop for the Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder.
Ruben Neves was a key player for Wolves as he helped the club secure their place in the Premier League at the start of the 2018/19. The ex-FC Porto star justified his then club-record fee of £15.8m by being one of the best players in the English Championship in his first season at Wolves (2017/18). Several clubs including Manchester United took notice of his quality during that season and the Red Devils have been constantly linked with him since then.
Manchester United signed fellow midfielder and fellow international Bruno Fernandes in January 2020 but there might be another midfield spot open at the club with the future of Paul Pogba in serious doubts. Ruben Neves could be the man to replace Pogba at Manchester United if the Frenchman leaves Old Trafford this summer.

Pogba’s Manchester United contract will expire in 2022 meaning that he has two years to go. This summer will definitely be the best time to let Paul Pogba leave the club for the second time if he won’t sign a new deal.
The Frenchman is a Manchester United Academy and has spent four footballing years away from the club at Juventus. He was an Old Lady between 2012 and 2016. Pogba returned to Manchester United four years ago for a world-record fee of £89m as at then.
Ruben Neves has played in the Premier League for two seasons and he has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the competition. The 23-year-old is renowned for his passing range as well as his long range shots. Wolves are not a selling club and the Red Devils face a big fight to lure him away from the Midlands outfit.
Transfer Ratings for Ruben Neves to Manchester United: 2/10.
