Wolves: Journalist talks up potential Ruben Neves exit

Wolves: Journalist talks up potential Ruben Neves exit -Wolves News

Wolves could potentially lose Ruben Neves to Barcelona following interest from the La Liga giants, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

The Lowdown: Neves a star man at Wolves

The 24-year-old wasn’t always at his best last season but he is enjoying an excellent 2021/22 campaign, running the midfield for Wolves alongside Joao Moutinho.

Neves, who was once the club’s most expensive signing of all-time, has scored three goals and registered one assist in 25 Premier League appearances this term.

He has been linked with a move to Barcelona in recent days, though, with a summer exit possibly on the cards.

Will Wolves qualify for the Champions League this season?

The Latest: Journalist talks up Neves exit from Wolves

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones claimed that Neves could find the lure of playing for Barcelona too much to turn down at the end of the season.

The journalist stated: “There is definite interest from Barcelona in Ruben Neves and that’s a bit of a worry for Wolves because they know at some point the player is going to test himself at one of the elite clubs.

“They were confident he wouldn’t jump ship for Arsenal or Manchester United right now, but Barcelona? That’s different.”

The Verdict: Hard to turn down Barcelona

Neves has been a loyal figure for Wolves since coming to the Black Country in 2017, but while it would be fantastic news to hear that he wants to stay for many more years, the prospect of him moving on from Molineux does not seem implausible.

At 24, the midfielder looks to be heading towards his prime footballing years, and he may believe that he is capable of starring for a Champions League club, rather than one on the fringes of Europa League qualification.

Playing for a club like Barcelona would be a dream for many players, and after five years of loyal service at Molineux, it would be hard to begrudge him a move there, even if the La Liga giants aren’t the force of old. Portuguese legends such as Luis Figo and Deco have worn the famous blue and red jersey and Neves could be eager to follow in their footsteps.
