Manchester United were forced to settle for a draw at Molineux on Monday night, and the performance of Wolves’ Ruben Neves caught the eye of several Red Devils fans.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side did everything right for the most part. The defence looked solid again with Harry Maguire marshalling things, while Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford continued their great starts to the season, linking up together for the opening goal.
The game was controlled well and Paul Pogba was dictating the pace in midfield. Unfortunately though, sometimes you just get done by a little piece of sheer quality.
Neves struck a superb equaliser ten minutes after half-time, and fans are calling for the club to sign the Portugal international in the next transfer window.
The 22 year-old, who is valued at £40.5m by Transfermarkt, is in contract with Wolves until 2023.
Fans don’t care about that though, and are questioning why they didn’t move for the long-shot specialist this summer.

Still absolutely baffles me as to how we didn’t attempt to sign Ruben Neves this summer, literally exactly what we need and available for 60-70m, and this is not reactionairy because of last night, been saying this for months. #GlazersOut #WoodwardOut

It’s still baffles me why we didn’t sign Neves? We need a midfield and he is Young and proved himself in the EPL.
