Manchester United will try to sign Ruben Neves late on transfer deadline day, it has been claimed. The Wolves star has been linked with a move to Old Trafford all summer. But the Red Devils are up against the clock if they’re to welcome the 24-year-old to the Theatre of Dreams by 11pm tonight.
Manchester United have had a sensational transfer window.
Tom Heaton joined on a free from Aston Villa, with the veteran looking to challenge David De Gea and Dean Henderson to be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s No 1.
Jadon Sancho then joined from Borussia Dortmund, moving at the fourth attempt after the club missed out in 2017, 2019 and 2020 respectively.
Raphael Varane also signed on the dotted line, touching down from Real Madrid.
And, just on Friday, United announced they’d agreed the blockbuster return of Cristiano Ronaldo – 12 years after he departed for Real Madrid.
Despite that, however, supporters want more.

Many are clamouring for the arrival of a new defensive midfielder, especially given Fred’s questionable display against Wolves on Sunday afternoon.
With Eduardo Camavinga heading to Real Madrid, and links to Saul Niguez down to his agent, it means Neves is the only possibility.
And Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri has claimed United will try to sign Neves before the transfer window shuts at 11pm tonight.
However, it’s noted that with such little time left on the clock, a deal is unlikely.
Fabrizio Romano has also had his say, revealing Neves is the last name on their radar but again stating it’s not feasible at such a late hour.
“The only option for Manchester United in midfield is Ruben Neves, but as of now they have not reached an agreement with Wolves – there is nothing imminent,” he said on his Here We Go podcast.

“Let’s see if Manchester United will decide for something crazy in the final hours.
“My feeling is, after signing Ronaldo, [United] are happy with this [the business they’ve done].”
With United unlikely to sign Neves, that now seems to be that.
But it seems as though they could still make one last attempt to bring the Portugal international to Old Trafford.
Wolves boss Bruno Lage, meanwhile, recently revealed that he wanted Neves to stay at the club.
However, intriguingly, he also suggested every player had a price.
“All the top players we have are linked with all the clubs in the world,” he said.
“If you go to Portugal, the top players at Benfica are all linked with moves to Wolves.
“Ruben is happy here and we are happy with him. We are not thinking to let anyone leave, but every player has a price.
“You never know, if Messi changes to PSG then anyone can go.”
Tottenham have also been linked with Neves, who has been a consistent performer for Wolves over the past few years.
