Manchester City Player Advises Joao Neves to Shun Manchester United Move



Portuguese prodigy Joao Neves, currently shining at Benfica, has been urged by a fellow Portugal teammate to steer clear of Manchester United’s interest and consider a move to Manchester City.

Despite being just 19, Neves has already established himself as a key figure at Benfica, showcasing his talent with three goals and two assists in an impressive 2023-24 season.

His contributions helped Benfica clinch the Portuguese league title in the previous season, and he’s been a crucial part of their Champions League campaign.

Neves’s stellar performances haven’t gone unnoticed, earning him a spot in Portugal’s Euro 2024 squad after winning six caps for his country.

Benfica secured his services with a long-term contract until 2028, but rumors suggest a £105m release clause could pave the way for his departure.

Manchester United is reportedly leading the race for Neves, with coach Roberto Martinez endorsing his potential fit at the club. However, Bernardo Silva of Manchester City has openly advocated for Neves to join him at the Etihad, emphasizing the benefits of playing alongside him in sky blue.

Silva’s endorsement adds to the intrigue surrounding Neves’s future, as he navigates between the two Manchester clubs. Despite Silva’s persuasive pitch, the decision ultimately lies with Neves, who is praised for his work ethic and game-changing energy.

While Manchester United may seem like a more attractive prospect for Neves on the field, uncertainties surround Silva’s future at City, with potential interest from Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain. Neves could find immediate stardom at United, whereas he might play second fiddle to Rodri at City. Additionally, the presence of fellow Portuguese players like Diogo Dalot and Bruno Fernandes could sweeten the deal at Old Trafford.


However, financial considerations may complicate any immediate transfer, making a summer move seem improbable despite the allure of both clubs.
