Manchester United are no longer interested in signing Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves after the Premier League side asked for a fee of £75million.

Premier League rivals Arsenal and Spanish side Barcelona are also no longer interested in signing the midfielder due to the asking price.

According to The Sun, Manchester United, Arsenal and Barcelona all believe the actual worth of Neves is around £45million.

Wolves signed Neves five years ago from Portuguese club Porto for just £15million and are now demanding around £75million for the 25 year old midfielder.

With all three clubs no longer interested in signing Neves, the midfielder now looks set to remain with Wolves next season.

Since joining Wolves from Porto in 2017, Neves has made 212 appearances for Wolves across all competitions, scoring 22 goals and assisting another 10.

He has just two years left remaining on his contract and isn’t interested in signing a new contract with Wolves.

The ability of Neves to dictate play from the midfield while shielding the defence, as well as his set-piece prowess, makes the midfielder an exciting prospect.

Manchester United could return next summer for Neves when he will have just one year left on his Wolves contract.

Meanwhile, former Sheffield United and Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock believes it will “take at least three years” for Erik ten Hag to fix Manchester United.

Manchester United finished sixth in the Premier League last season despite spending over £120million in signing Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho.

Manchester United also ended the campaign with a goal difference of zero after scoring 57 goals and conceding 57 goals.

Warnock posted on Twitter: “It’s going to take at least three years for Man United to sort out the chaos Steve McClaren talks about at the club, what a mess it sounds like there. Lack of leadership for a decade.”
