'I will pull strings': Bernardo Silva sends cheeky message to Man United-linked Joao Neves

Speaking about the emergence of Portugal midfielder Joao Neves, who has been linked with Man United, Man City star Bernardo Silva said: “I am very happy for João and other kids who are appearing in Benfica’s team and also in the national team.

“Joao Neves in the Premier League? I think that players with quality can play in any championship. I see him very focused on his club, which is the most important thing at the moment, a very young player but with a very promising future ahead of him.

“He arrived at the national team, settled in and integrated very well. He’s another one to help, if the coach thinks so, to help us help win the European Championship.

“For City instead of United? If I can, I will pull strings to Joao Neves to go to Man City. I’d like to see João joining City instead of Man United, of course.”

Bruno Fernandes had indicated that he’d love to see Neves at Old Trafford, but the youngster might be too expensive for the Red Devils right now.

The Benfica star reportedly had a €100m release clause, which is something Man United or Man City are unlikely to pay for a young midfielder at this point of time.
