Manchester United has reached an agreement to trade players. Wolves are considering a move for Ruben Neves.
Ruben Neves of Wolves has piqued Manchester United’s interest in a deal.
Manchester United are still looking to add to their squad before the transfer market closes. With Eduardo Camavinga departing for Real Madrid, Ruben Neves is being watched closely behind the scenes. When it comes to getting a deal done for the Portugal international, Jesse Lingard may be a viable option.
Manchester United had a fantastic transfer window this summer.
Tom Heaton joined on a free transfer to give competition between the sticks for David De Gea and Dean Henderson, who have both been unreliable.
After that, Jadon Sancho went from Borussia Dortmund for a massive £73 million fee.
Following Sancho’s arrival at Old Trafford, United signed Raphael Varane, a 28-year-old midfielder from Real Madrid.
They also revealed on Friday that Cristiano Ronaldo had agreed to return to his old club in Hollywood, 12 years after he left.
United is now considering making a late move for Neves.

Express Sport knows the club isn’t confident behind the scenes, but they’re still willing to make late acquisitions if their net budget stays within reason.
Lingard might be the key to breaching the Wolves’ resistance.
Despite the fact that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated that he values Lingard, the playmaker is unlikely to start many games for the club this season.
There are lots of opportunities for him to make an impression on the calendar.
However, if United proposes a straight trade involving Lingard and Neves, Bruno Lage’s team will very probably consider it.
Last season, the England international shone at West Ham.

Lingard was a revelation at the London Stadium, scoring nine goals and assisting four times during his stint under David Moyes.
As a result, his stock is once again at a high level.
With the addition of Lingard, Wolves would be onto a winner, as his versatility would appeal to Lage’s squad.
Furthermore, the former Brighton loanee’s deal at Old Trafford is up in 12 months.
United fear losing Lingard for free next summer if they don’t get him off the books immediately. Something that wouldn’t be possible for a team who lost £150 million during the pandemic.
