Man City star Bernardo Silva plans to ruin Man United's transfer business

Manchester City star Bernardo Silva wants young Portuguese player Joao Neves to join him at the Premier League champions rather than play for rivals Manchester United.

The 19-year-old has caught the interest of scouts from all across Europe during his breakthrough season at Benfica, including teams like Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.

Man United, who have been keeping an eye on the talented young midfielder for some time, has been linked to the player.

Neves is part of Portugal’s squad for Euro 2024 and he will be playing with some of the best players in the world.

If he keeps up this energy, he has a very good future ahead of him.”

On Tuesday, he made his first start under manager Roberto Martinez, playing the entire ninety minutes in a 4-2 triumph over Finland.
