🚨 BREAKING NEWS: Manchester United Secure Unbelievable Deal for Portugal’s Rising Star! 🚨 In a stunning turn of events, Manchester United have pulled off a sensational coup by securing the signature of Benfica’s wonderkid Joao Neves! 🌟After intense negotiations and a nail-biting final offer, the Red Devils’ persistence has paid off. Benfica has accepted United’s take-it-or-leave-it bid for the 19-year-old sensation. With a jaw-dropping £59 million on the table, the Portuguese giants have finally relented, paving the way for Neves to make his way to Old Trafford. 🏟️


Manchester United have reportedly made a final take-or-leave offer for Benfica’s young talent Joao Neves, according to Portuguese publication Record (page 15). The Red Devils are looking to strengthen their defensive midfield this summer and have several targets in mind, including Neves.

United’s initial £51m bid for Neves was unsuccessful last month. Record now claims that the club has upped their offer to £59m. However, this is their final proposal, and there is no clear indication that Benfica will agree to sell Neves.

Neves, who is 19 years old, has a £102m release clause in his contract. Benfica’s president, Rui Costa, is keen to keep him for the 2024/25 season. While a summer exit hasn’t been completely ruled out, it would likely take at least £85m for Benfica to consider letting him go.

Neves would be a significant signing for United, as he had an impressive breakout season with Benfica, excelling in the number six role. He maintained a passing accuracy of 90%, won two tackles and six duels per game, and averaged 6.4 recoveries, completing 62% of his take-ons. Despite his young age, Neves has demonstrated considerable maturity, and Costa has called him a “born leader.”

Securing Neves would make a strong statement for United, but it might require a higher fee to convince Benfica to sell. Given United’s limited transfer budget, making another offer might be unlikely. Instead, they might shift their focus to acquiring Paris Saint-Germain’s Manuel Ugarte.
