Manchester United Told To Sign Paul Scholes-Like Wolverhampton Midfielder

Speaking about the prospect of Manchester United signing Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves this summer, ex-Man United midfielder Paul Parker told the Talk of the Devils podcast: “When journalists speak about him they always use a variation of words to effectively say he’s been around for ages.

“Has he reached his potential yet? I don’t think he has. He was a standout player for Wolves but not consistent week in, week out. When you talk about someone striking the ball, there’s only one player I can remember doing that, and that’s Paul Scholes.

“If he was playing for a Manchester United with the quality around him, you will see his game improve… players come to United and lift another level.”

“Yes, more have struggled, but someone like Neves, coming to play with his countryman Fernandes, you’ll have someone who can play in deep areas and United have lacked that for a long time.

“It depends the path United want to take. Do they want a big name with a good marketing value or a big name who’s a big footballer? If it’s the latter, then Neves is a good player to go and get. And I think that’s the path they need to go down.”

Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes is reportedly pushing for United to make a move for Neves as they search for a new midfielder in the summer transfer window.

However, with doubts over Paul Pogba’s future, the Red Devils are not being able to pull the trigger on signing another midfielder and need to offload some players themselves to fund another signing.
