Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side plan £50m move for Pedro Neto

Pedro Neto

Manchester United is eyeing a summer swoop for Wolves forward Pedro Neto, consistent with reports.

The Portugal international is enjoying a superb season at Molineux, having scored five goals and provided five assists in 29 Premier League appearances.

Diogo Jota has impressed at Liverpool since moving to Anfield from Wolves last summer, and Neto might be set to follow in his compatriot’s footsteps by taking a intensify.

According to The Sun, United has made Neto one among their transfer targets before the close-season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side currently sits second within the Premier League and booked their place within the quarter-finals of the Europa League on Thursday.

The Red Devils also will advance to the semi-finals of the FA Cup if they beat Leicester on Sunday.

However, a 14-point margin separating them from a top spot within the Premier League shows there’s still work to be done at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer is keen to feature in his squad within the summer and is claimed to possess earmarked Neto as a possible target.

The United boss views the 21-year-old as an alternate to Jadon Sancho, who was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford last summer.

Neto can play on either wing or through the center and has been deployed altogether three positions by Nuno this term.

The Portuguese also has Premier League experience and would be less expensive than Sancho, with Wolves valuing him at around £50m.

Leeds winger Raphinha and Sporting CP’s Pedro Goncalves also are on United’s shortlist before what might be a busy summer at the club.

Goncalves features a release clause of £51.5m, but signing Raphinha directly from Leeds could prove difficult given the rivalry between the 2 clubs.

Liverpool also is thought to have an interest in the Brazilian, who scored the winning goal against Fulham on Friday.
