Man Utd fans are getting seriously excited after seeing who 'liked' Kobbie Mainoo post on Instagram

Man Utd fans are getting seriously excited after seeing who 'liked' Kobbie Mainoo post on Instagram

Mainoo has been called up to the England senior squad for the first time.

The news of Kobbie Mainoo's first senior England call-up has been 'liked' by many, including a Manchester United transfer target that continues to be linked with a big-money move.

Mainoo was drafted into the England squad on Tuesday ahead of friendlies against Brazil and Belgium.

After impressing in United's dramatic 4-3 win over Liverpool in the FA Cup, the 18-year-old midfielder will be hoping to replicate that form in front of Gareth Southgate this month.

Having been called up to play for the Three Lions, Mainoo's rise has been highlighted by many on social media, including Instagram account 433, who relayed the news to their 72 million followers.

The post has since been 'liked' by over 525,000 fans, including highly-rated Benfica midfielder Joao Neves, who continues to be linked with a summer move to Old Trafford.

It was reported this month that United part-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe is set to approve a record-breaking offer of more than £100 million to sign Neves this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

And earlier this week, Bruno Fernandes said Neves was "ready" to make that jump and play for a top club.

Speaking to Portuguese broadcaster Sport TV, Fernandes was asked about Neves being linked with a move to United.

"I don't know if United rumours are true, but I know he is ready for that big jump," he replied.

"He is an excellent player, he's with the national team… that's also why the big clubs are after him."

Fernandes was full of praise for Neves back in November. "It has to be the Man United coach who says whether he has a place or not," he said.

"He's a great player, I don't know if he would have a place or not. It depends on the coach and his ideas.

"But he's an excellent player and an excellent kid, very professional, he will have a bright future wherever he goes. I would love to have him by my side. Because he has quality and will have a bright future."

He added: "It depends on him. What I want most is the best for him."
