Wolverhampton Wanderers have taken to life back in the Premier League with aplomb during the 2018/19 campaign.
Wolves romped to the Championship title last season and have produced some eye-catching performances during their return to the top flight.
Nuno Espírito Santo has built a solid squad and is side are currently seventh in the league.
The form shown by Santo’s men this season has alerted some clubs towards some of his top players.
According to The Express, Ruben Neves has emerged as a target for Premier League giants Manchester United.
Wolves value Neves at a staggering £100 million and the report suggests that United’s interest will only remain if that valuation is lowered.
The stance from the Molineux-based club indicates they mean business, however.
Over the years the division’s bigger clubs have cherry-picked the best players from the other clubs.
Wolves demanding such an astronomical amount of money suggest that they aren’t satisfied with being in the bracket of ‘another’ club.
Neves has cranked up his performance level during 2019.
He netted the winner during Wolves’ 2-1 FA Cup win over Liverpool and also bagged in a league win over Everton.
The 21-year-old could become one of the most sought-after players in European football during the summer, although Wolves seem undeterred.
Given their spending prowess, Wolves will want to keep progressing in the top flight.
If they can maintain their current league position and sneak into Europe, the next step would be to continue the momentum and challenge for a top-four finish.
In order to do that they will need to keep hold of players like Neves.
