United plan summer swoop for Wolves winger

Manchester United are planning to make a summer swoop for Wolves winger Pedro Neto, as they step-up their search for a right-sided forward.

The 21-year-old has enjoyed a fine season at Molineux, appearing in all their Premier League matches, and scoring 5 goals.

The Portuguese international is regarded as a more viable alternative to Jadon Sancho, because he is likely to only cost £50 million.

He began his professional career in his homeland with Baraga, who loaned him to Lazio in 2017.  However, he barely played for the Serie A side, and Wolves bought him in 2019.

He got his first call-up to the Portuguese national side last November, and became the first player born in the 2000s to appear for his country when he made his debut against Andorra. He also marked the occasion by scoring in that match.
