Ruben Neves TEAMtalk

Wolves star Ruben Neves has given no indication that he is ready to jump ship at Molineux this summer.

The 22-year-old midfielder only signed a new improved five-year deal with the club last  , but his impressive debut season in the Premier League has seen plenty of admiring glances coming his way.

The Portugal star has been linked with Manchester United, Manchester City, Juventus and Liverpool and is now rated in the £50million-plus bracket after signing from Porto two years ago for £15.8million.

City boss Pep Guardiola spoke about the holding midfielder in January and said he was out of City’s price range.

Guardiola said: “A month ago I started reading ‘Ruben Neves, £100million’. That is not going to happen. We are not going to pay £100million for a holding midfielder.”

Tuttosport have also reported that Juventus have been in contact with Neves’ agent Jorge Mendes, while Man Utd have been linked with the player but are not keen on his price tag,

Liverpool assistant boss Pep Lijnders only last month admitted that Neves was on their radar, but the player himself has hinted that he’ll be at Wolves next season.

 

Neves told the club’s website: “Thank you for the support, thank you all. I can’t wait for us again next season to do things well.

“It’s been unbelievable. I think the best atmosphere that I’ve played in in England, is at Molineux. I think it’s really difficult to play there.

“It’s been a tremendous year for the club. Tremendous for us, players, staff, all the fans, I think it was a great season.

“We achieved seventh place in our first year in the Premier League which is a great result for a team that came from Championship. It isn’t easy.

“We have the feeling of mission accomplished. We did a great season, with good and bad moments, but always with the focus on our goal.

“Two years ago we started in the Championship. This year we moved to the Premier League and we have already shown that we have the capacity to fight for the highest places. That should continue to be our goal – improve every day.”
