Manchester United’s interest in Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves is ‘genuine’. [Express]
Strong reports coming out that Manchester United are seriously interested in singing Ruben Neves and Bruno Fernandes is pushing for the move.
Ruben Neves played 54 games in 2019/20 which contributed to a bit of a drop off last season, with Wolves as a team taking a step back
Even then he won the 5th highest number of tackles in the PL.
£35m would be buying low on a quality player.
Rúben Neves p90 since making his PL debut:
•61.13 attempted passes
•50.08 successful passes
•18.07 attempted long passes
•13.66 successful long passes
•10.06 passes into the final third
•8.35 ball recoveries
Strong numbers with and without the ball.
Dean Jones, speaking to The Football Terrace, claims United's 'pursuit is genuine' and that Fernandes would love to welcome his compatriot to Old Trafford.
For people who are wondering about Neves defensively, this is where coaching comes in. Whole point of getting Varane is so we can play 10 yards higher & condense the space of the pitch, that way the midfielders only need to be responsible for specific zones to cover when pressing.
Neves’ couple of wonder strikes is really messing with everybody’s judgment of him. Just had a conversation about him with a friend, who’s an Arsenal fan, and he thinks Neves better than Xhaka and an upgrade on Matic, if United get him.
