However, the news source have revealed that for now, the Gunners have edged ahead in the race to hire the services of 23-year-old winger.

Neto’s current contract with Wolves will expire in the summer of 2027 and as per the report, it would take a fee of at least £60million to secure his signature.

In the current campaign, Man Utd wingers have been in dreadful form. Sancho featured in three league games before his outburst on Ten Hag and did not score a single goal.

Big money signing from last summer, Antony, is yet to find the net in the Premier League (9 games), similarly, Garnacho has featured in 10 league games so far and has not scored.

Marcus Rashford was our top scorer last season and this term, thus far, he has only netted a single goal in 11 PL appearances and provided just one assist.

Neto has been in fantastic form for Wolves. In 10 league appearances, the pacy attacker has directly contributed in 8 goals (1 goal and 7 assists).

Back in September, he put in a MOTM performance in the victory against champions, Manchester City, and then provided assists in the next three games against, Villa, Bournemouth and Newcastle respectively.

Unfortunately, he has missed the last two Premier League games due to a hamstring concern and will not be available for the Monday night fixture versus Fulham.

Have your say – Should Man Utd offer £60million to sign Pedro Neto in January?

  1. Pedro Neto is a fantastic player, he can drible pass any opponent with his pace and techniques not like that of Sancho and Anthony (Brazil man) that can’t drible pass a single opponent successfully. am a die-hard Manchester United Fans, I will be very happy if United can get Pedro Neto signed when January transfer open. But please don’t let arsenal snatch that guy from us because is gonna pain me seriously because that guy Pedro Neto is an amazing player.

  2. £60m for Neto, that’s gone down from the £70m banded around a few weeks ago, we will be asking for a massive fee probably nearer the £100m mark and that would still be a steal, the club have said he’s not going anywhere in January but £100m plus would seal it.
    He needs to go to much bigger clubs than manure and arsenal.
