Ruben Neves

United are also looking to sign a new midfielder this summer regardless of what happens to Paul Pogba’s future.

And Eurosport’s Dean Jones recently claimed a deal for Ruben Neves was “pretty advanced” saying, “I haven’t heard much about Saul Niguez personally.

“So it’s hard for me to judge. So I’d say based on the information I had, and it all depends on your sources, I know for sure that they like Neves, that they were working on it in the background, and it’s pretty far down the line.

“And if you want to move forward with it, you can, because the foundations have been laid.

“I don’t know about Saul Niguez how much weight is really behind it, so it’s hard for me to judge.

“There’s enough out there to believe there’s anything substantial, but I’m skeptical because it’s Saul Niguez, that happened a couple of times.”
