Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves is “not willing to listen” to offers from English clubs, “unless” Manchester United make a move for him this summer, according to Sport.
The Catalan publication claims that the Portuguese international would be interested in a switch to Barcelona, with his agent Jorge Mendes working on the deal.
However, the likes of United, Tottenham and Arsenal have been heavily linked with Neves in recent months, and it had been assumed that he would be open to remaining in the Premier League.
It now appears, though, that the Red Devils are the only team that could persuade the 25-year-old to stay in England beyond the end of the season.
Other reports have suggested that Wolves are holding out for a fee in excess of £45m for Neves, so it remains to be seen whether that figure would tempt United into signing the Portuguese midfielder.
With RB Leipzig’s Konrad Laimer, Leeds’s Kalvin Phillips and Leicester’s Youri Tielemans also on the club’s radar, it’s not clear where Neves fits on the list in terms of priority midfield targets.
