Manchester United want Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves to replace Ander Herrera at the end of the season, according to a report in Spain
Manchester United are targeting Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves to replace Ander Herrera, according to a report in Spain.
Spanish media site El Gol Digital, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Red Devils are monitoring the 20-year-old as a potential replacement for Herrera.
The same article states that the Spain international’s future at the 20-time English champions is far from certain and is being tipped to leave Manchester United this summer.
Herrera has found his first-team opportunities limited this term following the arrival of Nemanja Matic in a £40m deal from defending Premier League champions Chelsea FC back in August.
According to the same story, Manchester United could face competition from La Liga giants Atletico Madrid for the Wolves midfielder.
Neves has scored four goals in 32 appearances in the Championship this term to help Wolves secure top spot in England’s second tier competition with 14 games to go.
Wolves signed Neves in a £15m deal from Portuguese giants FC Porto in the 2017 summer transfer window.
Manchester United are in second place in the Premier League table ahead of their trip to Crystal Palace in the English top flight on Monday night.
The Red Devils will take on Sevilla in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 on Tuesday 13 March.
