Manchester United have strengthened their attack and the defense this summer. On the other hand, they have ample quality and depth as far as the goal-keeping department is concerned.
Therefore, before the closure of the transfer window, Man Utd have to secure the signing of a top midfielder and in our view, the Red Devils must move to lure Ruben Neves.
The Old Trafford outfit have not adequately improved the central midfield for over three years and now is the time, Ole must sign a top midfielder to have a serious chance of winning the Premier League title this term.
Liverpool have Fabinho, Chelsea have Jorginho and City have Rodri for the role of a deep-lying playmaker/DM but Man Utd have no specialist in their squad. Matic is past his best and the likes of McTominay and Fred are way too inconsistent.
Ruben Neves is a proven quality Premier League star, who can sit in front of the back-four, break play and provide perfect passes to our attackers. Moreover, if needed he can be deployed in the creative central midfield role as well. Last season, he directly contributed in 7 goals for Wolves.
The 24-year-old Portuguese international netted a stunning long-range goal vs the Red Devils in the 2019-20 season and yesterday, he was once again impressive in the midfield battle against us.
In all fairness, we were lucky to earn all three points as the Molineux outfit missed a lot of chances, and the foul on Neves was ignored by the refs.
The 22-capped international is brilliant from dead-ball situations as well but with the arrival of Ronaldo, I do not think anyone else would be able to take free-kicks when he is on the field.
Declan Rice has mainly been our prime target but he is valued at around £100million (The Independent). On the other hand, Neves can only be lured for a fee of around £35million (The Athletic). In your view, should Man Utd splash £35million to get his signing done?
