London, May 28: Ruben Neves is Erik ten Hag's number one midfield target in his first transfer window as manager at Manchester United.
Neves, 25, signed for Wolves from Porto in 2017, and quickly asserted himself as a crucial cog in midfield.
United made a move for the Portugal international in the January transfer window, and were rebuffed, but they reportedly prepared to come in with a much more substantial offer this time around.

After United's January offer of £35million was unsuccessful, The Sun is reporting Wolves will want in the range of £50m to sell star man Neves.
Wolves have reportedly been preparing for life without Neves for some time now, and are targeting 26-year-old Sporting CP midfielder Joao Palhinha as his long-term replacement. They are also said to have strong interest in Benfica's Martim Neto, demonstrating the clear links their scouting department has with the Primeira Liga.
