Man United ready to ‘advance’ on £105m Wonderkid transfer with Casemiro decision

Manchester United are reportedly stepping up their interest in signing Benfica midfielder Joao Neves.

United have been heavily linked with a move for Neves ever since the January transfer window. The 19-year-old has also been reportedly listed as a potential target for Liverpool and Chelsea in recent months.
