Could Spurs reignite Ruben Neves interest should they make Nuno appointment?
Nuno Espirito Santo could be Tottenham Hotspur’s next manager if Jorge Mendes gets his way – judging by reports this week.
The Sun claimed this week that Mendes is trying to land Nuno the Spurs job following the announcement that he will leave Wolves after this season.
It remains to be seen if Tottenham show interest in appointing Nuno. The Daily Express did report in April that Daniel Levy was keen on the 47-year-old.
Should Mendes get his way and Nuno is appointed, perhaps it may not be too difficult to work out who his first target this summer may prove to be.
The Athletic surprisingly reported on Tuesday that Wolves are planning to sell Ruben Neves in this window.
It was claimed that they hope to raise £35 million to fund their summer plans.
Selling Neves would surely be a hugely unpopular decision. He is an outstanding talent. And at 24, he is potentially still some way from his peak.
He is also a player who has been on Spurs’ radar in the not-so-distant past.
Le10 Sport claimed last June that Tottenham wanted Neves.
Obviously, a move would not take place. And Spurs fans may be wary of targeting a Wolves player given the problems Matt Doherty has had since making that move.
But Neves is at a different stage of his career. And a look on social media would suggest that many supporters deem the Portuguese to be amongst their best players.
Having signed for Nuno previously, he would surely be tempted by the chance to work with him again.
So while many pieces of the puzzle need to fall into place before Neves is moving to North London, perhaps the various reports hint that a move could be possible should Nuno succeed Jose Mourinho.
