Bernardo Silva, the midfielder for Manchester City and former Benfica talent, has declared his intention to actively deter Benfica midfielder Joao Neves from joining Manchester United.

As Manchester United contemplates bolstering its midfield in 2024, uncertainties loom over the future of Casemiro, and Sir Jim Ratcliffe might entertain the idea of selling him.

With Sofyan Amrabat currently on loan from Fiorentina, his permanent signing remains uncertain.

United has identified potential midfield targets, and Joao Neves from Benfica is emerging as one of them.

Recent reports suggest that Erik ten Hag has instructed United to closely monitor Neves, labeling the Red Devils as ‘long-term admirers’ of the talented midfielder.

Adding an intriguing twist to the story, Bernardo Silva, having risen through the ranks at Benfica himself, expressed his desire to thwart Neves from joining Manchester United.

In an interview with Mais Futebol in Portugal, Bernardo hinted at persuading Neves to opt for a move to Manchester City instead.

Quoting Bernardo, “Am I going to put a wedge in so he doesn’t go to United and divert him to City? If I can, I’ll put a wedge in, of course I will.”

This comes on the heels of Bruno Fernandes, the United captain, expressing his enthusiasm for Neves to join Old Trafford.

The contrasting sentiments from Bernardo and Bruno set the stage for a potential tug-of-war between Manchester City and United for the coveted talent of Joao Neves, adding an intriguing subplot to the unfolding transfer saga.
