Manchester United look for Championship players with Griezmann heading to Barcelona

The Red Devils are looking to the second tier to bolster their squad.

There’s no debating that Jose Mourinho will be looking to splash the cash this summer and add to a squad already riddled with talent. 

Antoine Griezmann now looks like he’ll remain in Spain, and link up with Messi and co at the Camp Nou.  The Frenchman is now as short as 1/2 to make the move. 

United fans will be begging their Portuguese manager to finally land one of their long term targets, which includes Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Mauro Icardi.

However, the latest player rumoured to join the club will shock a few of their loyal followers. 

Wolverhampton Wanderers are running away with the Championship this season, largely due to the cash they have splashed in the last few transfer windows. 

Ruben Neves was one of many players to join the Midlands club in the summer, signing from Portuguese giants Porto. 

Since his move, he’s gone on to make 32 appearances in the Championship, bagging four goals from central midfield. 

The Portuguese international has his eyes set on the Premier League, and the bookies believe he could be plying his trade in the top flight for the Red Devils.

Sky Bet have priced the Wolves midfielder at 10/3 to make the move in the summer, which implies a 23.1% chance. 

It looks like Manchester United are set to land a Portuguese international, but not the one plenty of fans have been dreaming of.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “Manchester United fans will have been dreaming of signing that ever elusive Portuguese international – but if reports are believed to be true - it won’t be the one fans are thinking of.”

“Neves has dazzled in the Championship and is set to break into the Premier League, although it’s yet to be seen if it’ll be with Wolves or Manchester United.”
