However, O Jogo, in the story published in their newspaper today claim that no such offer was made by the Old Trafford outfit.

The media outlet state Benfica are have not received any official proposal for the sale of the 19-year-old midfielder as yet.

As per O Jogo, Man Utd boss, Erik ten Hag, who has recently extended his stay at the club, sees Neves as a priority signing to reinforce things in the center.

To seal an agreement with Benfica, the Premier League side will have to reach the ‘threshold’ of £84.7million i.e. 100 million euros.
