Report: Wolves 24-year-old is expected to leave Molineux this summer

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly expected to sell Ruben Neves during this summer’s transfer window.

According to the Athletic, there is an expectation that the 24-year-old is going to leave Molineux after spending four years with the West Midlands club.

The report states that he could demand a transfer fee of around £35million. 

Neves, who is out of contract in two years time, could be sold by Wolves when they can still receive a sizeable fee for him in the transfer market.

The defensive midfielder was called “fantastic” earlier this month by the club’s departing manager Nuno Espirito Santo, and there is no doubt he’s been one of the key players during his tenure.

TBR’s View:

Neves has been part of a slightly underwhelming Wolves side this season but still been one of the more positive players, and has the ability to shine in the Premier League each week.

The £50,000-a-week ace (Spotrac) played in 36 of the 38 Premier League games and has been one of the first names on the team sheet.

He is a deep-lying playmaker with a sublime passing range, great technique from set-pieces, and he’s defensively switched on to help break up play.
