Juventus interest in Isco offers a boost to Wolves’ hopes of keeping Neves

Juventus were this week linked with a January swoop for Wolves playmaker Ruben Neves as they look to bolster their central midfield options ahead of a renewed assault on Champions League glory.

But the latest from Italian outlet Tuttosport reveal that Neves is not the only man on Juve’s radar, as they are lining up a 80 million euro bid for Real Madrid magician Isco.

That is along with their prolonged interest in Paul Pogba, who did nothing to boost his prospects at Manchester United last night.

His recall to the side to face Valencia was billed as something of an audition to impress Jose Mourinho but he flunked it miserably; he compounded an abject display by missing a first half sitter from around four yards.

Juventus are looking to take advantage of high-profile struggles at the world’s two richest clubs – Madrid and United – to poach a playmaker.

And that offers a huge boost to Wolves’ hopes of keeping Neves beyond January, although reports that Jorge Mendes is reportedly confident of moving his client away from Molineux must be a concern.

Nuno Santo will be hoping that both United and Real continue to nosedive going into the new year, causing Juventus to focus their attention on Pogba and Isco, leaving Neves to focus on Wolves.
