Manchester United are gearing up for a busy off season this summer, with numerous departures and signings expected.

Reinforcements are expected everywhere from defence to attack and as such, the club has been linked with so so many players around Europe.

One of these players is young Benfica midfielder Joao Neves who has been making waves all over Europe.

The teenage midfielder has emerged as one of Europe’s most sought-after youngsters over the past 12 months after being thrust into the first team following Enzo Fernández’s move to Chelsea.

Neves is still only 19, but he already is an integral part of Roger Schmidt’s Benfica and has already garnered 5 caps for Portugal.

Speaking to The United Stand, transfer guru Fabrizio Romano spoke on Neves’ situation in relation to Manchester United.

He went on to both confirm United’s interest and downplay any reports that United could be serious about the move on account of how expensive the young midfielder is.

“A player like Joao Neves at Benfica is a player they love because they have been scouting him for months,” Romano told The United Stand.

“They believe he is going to be a fantastic player in the future, but he is a really expensive one. So, I’m not sure Man Utd will have that kind of budget to go there, pay the clause and sign the player from Benfica,” he concluded.

Romano went on to state that there even is a possibility Man United will not sign a midfielder, even with the uncertainty around the midfield department.

Sofyan Amrabat has been very underwhelming, and he will be leaving after his loan expires. There still is uncertainty if Christian Eriksen will still be here, as he has already made it clear he is not enjoying not playing.

Age seems to be catching up with Casemiro, and he has been deteriorating in quality this season.

There are also reports that the club could be willing to cash in on Scott Mctominay, which will leave ten Hag with only two senior midfielders in Bruno Fernandes and young Kobbie Mainoo.

Fabrizio went on to state that United signing a midfielder was entirely dependent on the club making sales, ergo lacking the budget to make such an expensive signing.
