Wolverhampton Wanderers have settled down to life in the Premier League nicely as they continue to defy expectations under Nuno Espirito Santo.
The Midlands club certainly made moves over the course of the summer transfer window and won’t be afraid to when January comes around. Although, they may have to shop for a replacement for one of their star players, as according to the Metro, Manchester United will rival Manchester City for Ruben Neves’ signature.
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.
Jose Mourinho is a long-term admirer of the 21-year-old and the pair share an agent in Jorge Mendes, who consults with the Manchester United boss on a regular basis.
While, Guardiola is keen to sign a long-term replacement for Fernandinho and has been impressed with Neves’ distribution at the base of a midfield three for Wolves.
Worryingly, it’s understood that the Red Devils will counter any offer made by City in the January transfer window.
Ruben Neves has established himself as one of the hottest topics in world football since making the move to Molineux, but this has forced some of England’s big guns to take an interest in the Portuguese midfielder.
Wolves need to do everything they possibly can to hold onto the midfielder during the month of January as he will be vital to their campaign.
Jorge Mendes won’t want to upset Wolves supporters or the club by moving him onto bigger things, but a move to one of the two Manchester clubs may be too big to turn down for Neves.
So, it looks as if Jorge Mendes and Wolves are set for an uncomfortable January transfer window, with offers supposedly flying in from both Manchester clubs.
