Despite the widespread reports that English Premier League giants Manchester United were keen to sign Portugal international midfielder Ruben Neves from Wolverhampton Wanderers, the Red Devils never showed any real interest and also did not make any official bid for the player.
United signed at least a player from the goalkeeping department, the defensive and attacking departments but were not able to sign a single midfielder even though their fans were clamoring for them to bring in a new player for that position. One of the players that were linked with a move to Old Trafford was Ruben Neves and even though it looked like United were going to try to sign him, they did not.
The rumors linking Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves with an exit away from the club have cooled off recently but it is still believed that if a reasonable offer comes in for the player, he is bound to seal an exit from the Molineux Stadium this summer.
