Man City eyeing summer move for unhappy Saudi Pro League star and more transfer rumours

Share

Manchester City are considering a summer move for Saudi Pro League star Ruben Neves, as the midfielder looks to return to playing football in Europe.

The 26-year-old left Premier League team Wolves after six years in June after making an unexpected £47 million move to Al-Hilal.

Before completing a club-record move to the Saudi Pro League, Neves made over 250 appearances for Wolves and was linked to a possible move to either Barcelona or Manchester United.

The Portuguese international was one of several Premier League players who relocated to the Middle East in the summer, including Aymeric Laporte and Riyad Mahrez, the treble-winning duo of Manchester City, who signed with Saudi Pro League teams.

Along with Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, former Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson and Chelsea seasoned player N’Golo Kante made the move to the newly established division.

Despite only having 15 appearances for Al-Hilal, Neves is reportedly thinking about leaving the Saudi Pro League and going back to play in Europe. Manchester City is reportedly one of the teams looking to sign the midfield player.

According to Football Insider, Pep Guardiola’s team may compete with Newcastle United for the 26-year-old’s signature in the summer of 2020 as Manchester City looks to bolster their midfield further following after the departure of Ilkay Gundogan.

Matheus Nunes and Mateo Kovacic both joined Manchester City this summer, but questions have been raised about the two after the Sky Blues lost their first four Premier League games.

ElsewҺeгe, Manchester City have been in touch with the camp of Lille defender Leny Yoro, along with the French side themselves, as they eye a raid.

Since making his way into the starting lineup for Lille in the French top division, Yoro has been receiving incredible feedback for his performances.

He has made 34 senior appearances for the team at the age of just 18, 13 of which have come this season.

The French club are not keen on losing the player so early and are looking to extend his present contract that runs until the summer of 2025
