Manchester United To Replace Ander Herrera With Shock Championship Star?
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly set his sights on a Championship star should Ander Herrera leave the club at the end of the season.
According to The Sun, the Portuguese tactician has identified Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves as the Spaniard's likely replacement.
The 20-year-old star caught Mourinho's eye a few months back, and is also being closely monitored by Serie A giants AC Milan.
Neves, a Portugal international, joined Wolves from Porto for a Championship record fee of £15 million (R245 million) in July 2017, and has impressed since, scoring four times in 32 appearances.
Although Herrera recently signed a new deal with the Red Devils, there are rumours the Spanish star may push for a move away from Old Trafford at the end of the campaign.
The former Athletic Bilbao midfielder has had limited starts under Mourinho this season, which could be down to the arrival of Nemanja Matic, although many believe it is due to his inconsistent performances when the 28-year-old has featured.
Herrera has made 30 appearances for the Red Devils so far this season, scoring one goal and assisting one other strike.
