Man Utd fail in bid to sign Frenkie de Jong £75m-rated partner in crime for Erik ten Hag


Manchester United have suffered yet another transfer market failure after the Red Devils failed to sign Ruben Neves. The Portugal international had been seen as a potential partner for Frenkie de Jong in United’s new-look midfield under Erik ten Hag.

Neves has long been eyed as a target by United following his impressive performances for Wolves in the Premier League. And he had appeared to open the door to a potential exit this summer at the end of last season, following five years at Molineux.

But according to The Sun, that door has now been slammed shut, with Wolves looking like they have won the battle to keep him. United were among the clubs interested in signing Neves, but Wolves’ £75million price tag for their star midfielder sank any prospect of a deal.

Arsenal and Barcelona are also said to have been shown interest in the 25-year-old, but all three potential suitors believed his worth to be closer to £45m. With no team apparently willing to pay Wolves’ price, it means Neves is highly likely to stay in the Midlands.
