BACK Manchester United have had a €60m (£51m) offer knocked back for Benfica midfielder Joao Neves, according to Record. The Portuguese tabloid claims the proposal was well short of the player’s valuation, which currently stands at a mammoth €100m (£85m). Supporters on X are excited about the prospect of signing Neves, although some doubt whether the Red Devils have the funds to match Benfica’s asking price: That’s a nice try — Kara (@UTDKara) June 4, 2024 BRING MY BOY HOME🔥🔥 — Deeway (@DeewayBoy) June 4, 2024 Would love him but £85m is too much to spend — Zico (@UTDZico) June 4, 2024 Pay the money and get him early so he can settle down before the season starts. — Just Kogz (@SKogibito) June 4, 2024 We should sign him — Elvyn Wilzy (@ElvynWilzy) June 4, 2024 Very little chance #Mufc spends over £60m on any one player this summer transfer window. — Fred Ndong’ (@ndongystyle) June 4, 2024 Negotiate for £74m and pay instalmentally for 3 seasons .. — Nedu Ani🐦 (@BiafraOptimist) June 4, 2024 85m is way too much — 𝑳𝒘𝒂𝒏𝒅𝒊𝒍𝒆 (@Lwandile_DL) June 4, 2024 Neves has been dubbed the next Fernandes When the 19-year-old was first linked with a move late last year, comparisons were drawn between him and club captain Bruno Fernandes. The Manchester United midfielder has publicly praised Neves, who he encouraged to join him at Old Trafford. However, it has subsequently been revealed that Fernandes could leave Manchester this summer, so there is now a possibility that Neves is being eyed as his replacement. United could have competition for the player Respected journalist Fabrizio Romano has reported that Arsenal have also been scouting Neves, while other reports in Portugal have credited Liverpool with an interest too. Competition from rival Premier League teams may complicate things for United but the key to negotiations will be finding a compromise with Benfica over the price. If Record are to be believed, there is currently a chasm between the two sides in terms of their valuation of the Portuguese international.
