Man Utd have expressed interest in signing Joao Neves, Benfica want to keep him until 2025

Manchester United have already expressed an interest in signing Benfica wonderkid Joao Neves, according to Portuguese publication A Bola.

The 19-year-old is currently one of the best young defensive midfielders in European football and there are no surprises that he is garnering attention.

Meanwhile, a separate report from O Jogo claim that Benfica are not in a rush to part ways with Neves and wish to keep him in the squad until 2025.

Neves currently has a release clause worth €120 million in his contract. United may need to activate the clause if they want to sign him next summer.

The Portugal international has the ability to play in central or holding midfield, but he is most comfortable from the number six position.

This season, he has completed 52 passes per game with an accuracy of 92 per cent. He has won 1.5 tackles and 4.4 duels per outing.

At just 19, he has shown a lot of maturity on the playing field and he should only get better with more first-team experience under his belt.

United could consider him as a long-term replacement for Casemiro, who has shown signs of regression during the early part of the season.
