Manchester United paid a hefty fee to sign Casemiro last year and are now in the market to lure a long term replacement for the Brazilian.

More recently, Spanish source, Nacional, have revealed that the 20-time English champions are not happy with Casemiro, who also thinks he made the wrong decision to leave Real Madrid.

The Samba star was influential in the last campaign but he will turn 32 in February and Ten Hag must think about the future.

The Catalan media outlet claim Man Utd want to sign Neves and will have to agree a fee of at least £61million (70 million euros) to secure his signature.

He made seventeen appearances in Benfica’s title winning last campaign. As far as the current season is concerned, so far, the 19-year-old has featured in eight league games and helped the Eagles keep four clean sheets.

Back in August, the Liga Nos champions won the Portuguese Super Cup by beating Porto 2-0 in the final and Neves featured for 75 minutes in the contest.

His top performances at club level recently earned him his first international call-up and he made his debut for the Seleccao in the 5-0 victory over Bosnia last week.
