Manchester United: Fans drool over ‘best option’ after Ruben Neves speculation

According to a report from Goal, Manchester United are targeting Wolves duo Raul Jimenez and Ruben Neves, with the club reportedly out to strengthen in the forward and defensive midfield roles ahead of a crucial second half of the campaign – prompting supporters to get excited, particularly over the latter.

Jimenez, who has since had his links quashed by ‘senior figures’ who derided the speculation (per the Manchester Evening News), has been at the centre of Wolves’ brilliant campaign so far by scoring 11 goals – but midfielder Neves, according to some supporters, should definitely be their primary focus.

The Portuguese midfielder, who’s bagged two goals and one assist in the Premier League this season, could be seen as an excellent partner for the injured Scott McTominay – amassing a superior pass success rate of 79.2% whilst being just one goal shy of the Scotsman’s tally.

In fact, given his five long balls on average per Premier League game (per WhoScored), perhaps the former Porto man could be a good replacement for Paul Pogba, who averaged 4.7 last season. The Sun recently suggested the Frenchman was likely to leave Old Trafford in 2020, so signing a player who can offer the same sort of long, raking passes to release the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Daniel James could help provide ammunition.

As a result, supporters have rejoiced over the thought of landing Neves on social media – here’s what they had to say.
