Manchester United are looking for additional attacking options with Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Pedro Neto a new possibility.
The club have already missed a number of targets, with Erik ten Hag’s main target in that position, Antony, proving elusive.
Graeme Bailey and Scott Saunders report that the 20-time English champions had the opportunity to sign Neto.
The player shares an agent with Portuguese team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo and although Jorge Mendes tried to arrange a departure for his illustrious client, it’s possible Pedro’s name came up.
“United have also been offered Wolves striker Pedro Neto – who is a client of Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes.”

With Wolves breaking their transfer record for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Matheus Nunes and already spending much of their transfer prize pool on Goncalo Guedes and Nathan Collins, Bruno Lage’s side may have to offload a player high level.
“The club [Wolves] may need to sell a large asset in order to balance the books before the window closes.
“Neto could earn them significant fees. He would also provide an answer to United’s problems on the flanks.
The 22-year-old would be a welcome addition to the Old Trafford faithful.
He has a tremendous ability to play in all three frontline positions.
The Portuguese international is also extremely fast and very skilful with his feet, qualities that would quickly endear him to supporters.
Depending on whether a potential deal materializes and the price quoted, Neto would represent a smart business for United both currently and in the future. He is valued at just over £28m by transfermarkt.com.
