Wolves: Wanderers given Ruben Neves boost

Wolves: Wanderers given Ruben Neves boost -Wolves News

Wolves have now been given a big boost in their hopes of keeping Ruben Neves this summer.

The Lowdown: In demand

Neves is a man in demand, with Manchester United and FC Barcelona the latest to be linked with a high-profile move for the central midfield player in the summer.

Is Neves the best midfielder at Wolves?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Described as ‘outstanding‘ by The Athletic journalist Tim Spiers after his performance in the 1-0 win away at Everton last time out, Neves has been one of the Midlands club’s standout players once again this season, currently ranking as their second-best performer to have made at least ten appearances in the Premier League.

The Latest: Barca ruled out

As per AS (via Sport Witness), Barca signing Neves has now been ‘totally ruled out’, as they are unwilling to pay the €50m (£42.2m) asking price for his signature.

They could offer a player in any deal, but loan moves are already underway for both Adama Traore and Francisco Trincao.

The Verdict: Big boost

It is a big boost for Bruno Lage’s team that Barcelona are seemingly now out of the running for Neves.

The Portugal international is such a key player at Molineux, with four goals and two assists in the top flight so far this season, while he also ranks highly among his teammates in terms of average shots, passes, long and through balls per game (WhoScored).

Nonetheless, with one less club out of the race, it gives them a better chance of either keeping him or demanding a huge price tag.
