United already eyeing their Casemiro replacement

With it reported that Manchester United are keen on cashing in on Casemiro when the January transfer window gets underway, it appears that the Old Trafford hierarchy have already eyed up their dream replacement.

With Erik ten Hag reportedly looking to recruit more youthful options at the heart of United’s midfield, it has been suggested that the former Ajax boss is keen on Benfica starlet Joao Neves.

Already sending scouts over to watch the 19-year-old on multiple occasions this season, the club are expected to make an official decision once Ratcliffe’s arrival is completed.

Featuring in all of Benfica’s first 11 domestic appearances this season, the Portuguese starlet is regarded as one of Europe’s hottest young prospects.

Although Manchester United might be bracing themselves for a string of changes behind the scenes at Old Trafford, the Premier League giants should have all of their attention firmly fixed on securing another top-four finish this season.
