BREAKING NEWS: Reported By Football Guru Fabrizio Romano, 7/7 Duels Won, 97 Passes Completed Portugal Star Move To Manchester United Now Imminent After United Make An Improved Bid To Bring The Star Player To Manchester United. According To Reports, Manchester United Have Made An Improved Bid Of €65m With Add-Ons To Bring The Portuguese Sensational To Old Trafford. Report States Benfica Is Ready To Finalize Deal With Manchester United. Manchester United Stuns Football World As They Are Close On Makings João Neves Deal Official.

Manchester United’s €60m (£51m) bid for Benfica midfielder Joao Neves has been rejected, with the Portuguese club setting a higher asking price, according to reports. Significant changes are anticipated at Old Trafford this summer following Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS’s acquisition of a 27.7% stake in the Premier League club from the Glazer family.

As Manchester United gear up for the summer transfer window, INEOS sees this period as an opportunity to assert their influence over the club, marking a new era at Old Trafford. Major moves, both incoming and outgoing, are expected, with high-profile transfers like Casemiro already generating buzz. For Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his team, this summer is about demonstrating that they can run a well-organized football club, distancing themselves from the chaos associated with the Glazers.

Among the numerous talents linked to United in recent weeks, Joao Neves stands out. The young midfielder recently played alongside Bruno Fernandes for Portugal, impressing during their 4-2 victory over Finland. Neves, at just 19, dominated the midfield, showcasing why INEOS is keen on him. FotMob rated his performance 8.3, highlighting his impressive stats:


– Passes completed: 97/101 (96%)

– Chances created: 1

– Touches: 113

– Successful dribbles: 3/3 (100%)

– Passes into the final third: 15

– Tackles won: 2/3 (67%)

– Interceptions: 2

– Defensive actions: 5

– Recoveries: 6

– Duels won: 7/7 (100%)


Neves’ ability to dictate play from deep, combined with his defensive prowess, makes him an attractive prospect for United. Despite his youth, his potential is enormous. United recently submitted a £51m bid for Neves, which was turned down. His release clause is set at £105m, a sum likely beyond United’s reach this summer due to other positional needs. However, it is believed that an offer of around £85m might be sufficient to secure the deal.

INEOS views Neves as an ideal fit for Manchester United, reminiscent of previous Portuguese stars like Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani. Alongside Kobbie Mainoo, another exciting U20 midfielder, Neves could form a formidable duo at Old Trafford. While the pair are not natural complements—both prefer being on the ball—Mainoo’s physicality and Neves’ tenacity could create a balanced midfield partnership. This potential pairing appears to be a priority for INEOS, with several meetings with Neves’ agents already reported.

Neves’ recent performances reinforce his suitability for United, and it’s likely we haven’t heard the last of this potential transfer this summer.
