Manchester United have been in contact with player for some time now it reports had it that the star player want to move to old Trafford. He said “United coming for me Is a huge step in my career and I won’t want anyone get in my way. It’s man United or nothing”. Benfica starlet rejects contract offer after Manchester United bid gets turned down.


Portugal international Joao Neves has declined a new contract offer from Benfica amidst interest from Manchester United.

United aims to bolster their midfield this summer, with Joao Neves being a primary target. However, pursuing the Benfica star will be costly, especially given United’s current financial restrictions. The club needs to offload players before making new signings. Neves, 19, is considered a potential replacement for Casemiro, who is expected to leave Old Trafford before the new season begins. Despite this, United has not yet finalized their choice for Casemiro’s successor.

Last week, reports indicated that Benfica swiftly rejected a £51 million bid from United, according to Record. The challenge for United is Neves’s £105 million release clause, the same amount Chelsea paid for Enzo Fernandez 18 months ago. The Metro reports that Neves has now turned down Benfica’s contract renewal offer.

Neves has also drawn interest from Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, and Bayern Munich. Despite this widespread interest, United’s pursuit is reportedly the most advanced. However, the club is cautious about overspending and repeating past mistakes.

Neves is set to join Manchester United duo Bruno Fernandes and Diogo Dalot in the Portugal squad for the upcoming European Championships. United captain Fernandes praised Neves, suggesting he is ready for the Premier League. Fernandes said, “I don’t know if United rumors are true, but I know he is ready for that big jump. He is an excellent player, he’s with the national team. That’s also why the big clubs are after him.”

Neves has made a significant impact since breaking into Benfica’s first team, succeeding Enzo Fernandez. There is speculation that he could similarly fill the void at United if Casemiro departs.
