Manchester City have started the current campaign in a positive manner as they attempt to defend their Premier League title.
The Citizens haven’t managed to take maximum points from their opening four Premier League matches but they will be up there come the end of the season. Although, it looks as if they suffered a setback on the transfer front recently, as according to the Metro, Manchester United have joined the race for Ruben Neves.
Manchester United are ready to accelerate a move for Wolves star Ruben Neves and will challenge Manchester City for the midfielder in January if Pep Guardiola’s side submit an offer.
Indeed, Manchester City’s failure to sign Jorginho last summer has forced Guardiola into re-evaluating his midfield options and the club are prepared to move for Neves in January.
However, it’s understood that United will counter any offer that is made for the Portuguese star in January.
Ruben Neves has established himself as one of the hottest topics in the whole of world football since joining Wolverhampton Wanderers from Porto. And, it’s safe to say that City could become unstoppable if they managed to secure his services in January.
However, with Manchester United set to counter any offer that the defending Premier League champions approach Wolves with, they could lose out to their bitter rivals.
