Man Utd chasing Portugal star?

English Premier League

While midfielder Paul Pogba's future remains unclear, Manchester United have reportedly set their sights on Portugal star Ruben Neves.

The Red Devils, who have already bolstered their backline and attack by bringing in Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho, are now seemingly after a central midfielder.

According to the Daily Express, the Old Trafford side is eyeing a move for Wolverhampton Wanderers' Neves.

In fact, Eurosport's Dean Jones has claimed that, while he has not heard much regarding a move for Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez – who has also been linked with the Manchester club – United's potential deal for the Portuguese midfielder is "reasonably far down the line". 

"I just haven't heard a lot about Saul Niguez personally. So, it's hard for me to assess that one," Jones said on The Football Terrace podcast. 

"So I'd say because of the information I've had, and it all depends on your sources, I know for a fact that they do like Neves, that they've been working on it in the background and it's reasonably far down the line. 

"And if they do want to progress with it, they can, because the foundations have been laid.

"I don't know about Saul Niguez, how much weight there really is behind that, so it’s difficult for me to judge."
