Manchester United are expected to make a few waves in the upcoming summer transfer window. The club have made some encouraging progress this season and currently sit at second in the Premier League table.
And after Manchester City’s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Leeds United today, there is a chance that the title race could open up if future results go the Red Devils’ way. Ultimately though, the aim should be on finishing the season strong and then strengthening in the summer.
The club are expected to go after a striker, a centre-back and a winger, but defensive midfield could turn out to be a position of need as well, with Nemanja Matic set to turn 33. Also, Paul Pogba could end up leaving the club in the summer with just a year left on his contract at that point of time, which would leave a gap in central midfield.
As reported by 90 Min, Manchester United have added Ruben Neves to their list of summer transfer targets and Wolves could allow him to leave in the near future.

Neves could be a great signing for Manchester United
Neves has been one of the most integral parts of this Wolves team ever since joining them in 2017 as they have established themselves as Premier League regulars.
According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 5 goals and provided 2 assists in 34 appearances this season.
Signing a player the quality of Neves could be seen as a major coup on the part of the Red Devils. He has already proven himself in the Premier League and could become a first-team regular in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
And Neves is capable of playing as a central midfielder as well, meaning he could fill the void left behind by Pogba in case he does end up leaving in the summer.
All of that is for the future though. Right now, the Red Devils should be focused on the current campaign as they have a Premier League and a Europa League to play for.
