I don't understand our interest in Neves, he's another ball playing midfielder so either Ole is expecting Pogba to go and/or Donny to go.

Tbf neither have played that well. Donny doesn't even get to play and Pogba has been a decent player over 5 years.
And of course he's expecting Pogba to go. He's only got an year left. Either way, we must sign a player.

Neves seems like a good option for where Fred and McTominay play. Decent DM and a good playmaker. I don’t know if he’s the best possible option out there for that, but he’s a decent option and an improvement on what we’ve got.

I’d love to see us have two good passers in midfield, it’s ridiculous that a club our size doesn’t have that.

We’re Manchester United’s. Shouldn’t all our midfielders be “ball playing midfielders”??? I know what you’re saying though, shocking that Fred and McT can’t string passes together.

Although to be fair to McFred, neither is a holding midfielder by trade, they’re both just doing a job there and they tend to look better players when they’re able to play a bit further up the pitch.

In other news, we've been linked with a move for Goretzka.

I'd say good riddance but it'll cost far more to replace him than keep him and he is a decent player when the stars align for him.

I hope Pogba stays, there isn't another midfielder like him, and we'll be a lot more functional in midfield without him.

Problem is that it's been costing us a fortune trying to buy the stars to align for him

Yup, hence why it's best to be rid of him. He's a supremely talented footballer but he needs a specific system to get the best out of him and unfortunately modern football requires more flexibility.
