Wolves have made an impressive start to the Premier League campaign following their promotion from the Championship.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men currently sit ninth in the table on 12 points and are quickly catching the attention of many including the likes of Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho.
According to Goal, the managers of Manchester City and Manchester United could move for one of Wolves’ standout performers Ruben Neves in January.
Former Wolves defender Joleon Lescott, however, is confident his old side can keep hold of Neves and the rest of their key players for the remainder of the season.
Speaking in an interview with 888sport (via Express & Star), Lescott said: “A big club could be interested in Neves in January depending on how well he does, they are all going to be interested as he is a good player.
“But in terms of what Wolves are trying to do I don’t think they will be in any rush to sell him [or ]to even make him available.
“I am confident that Wolves are in a good position financially. Collectively the club and stability that they have means they are well-equipped to withstand pressure for their players.”
Having signed a new five-year contract in the summer, as well as what Lescott has alluded to, Wolves simply have no reason to sell Neves.
And at the age of 21, Neves should be in no rush to leave Molineux where he is currently the main man.
Any potential move to Manchester United right now also looks hugely risky with a lot of Jose Mourinho’s signings having struggled during their time under him at Old Trafford, while the midfield depth Guardiola has at Manchester City could be a problem, too.
Rather, it is probably best for Neves and co to continue under Nuno for the time being.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
