According to The Sun, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is a big admirer of Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves.

It has been reported that Mourinho has followed Neves's progress closely, and that the former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager - who has won league titles in Italy, Spain and England and the Champions League twice - was willing to make a move for the Wolves midfielder next summer after seeing how he coped with Premier League football.

 

United could now make a move for the 21-year-old midfielder in the January transfer window, with Manchester City also interested in the Portugal international midfielder, according to The Sun.

Exit inevitable?

Neves is one of the best young players in the Premier League, and the Portugal international midfielder’s performances for Wolves so far this season have been very encouraging.

City and United are massive clubs, and working with Pep Guardiola or Mourinho could be too tempting for the 21-year-old to resist.

Wolves, though, should try their best to hold onto the former FC Porto star until next summer if they want to have a successful season in the Premier League in 2018-19.
