Wolves fans discuss Ruben Neves after Man Utd stalemate

Wolves faced Manchester United for the third time in just a month on Saturday evening as Nuno Santo’s side continued their poor run of form in the Premier League.

Although a 0-0 stalemate is a relatively decent return against a side like the Red Devils, it is now just one win in their last six outings.

How much is Ruben Neves worth?









The spotlight was mainly on the home side as their marquee winter signing, Bruno Fernandes, as he made his debut following a £47m switch from Sporting Lisbon last week.

Following the match, Wolves supporters were left debating how much their Portuguese midfielder was worth in Ruben Neves.

Here are some of their valuations…

Several fans were of the opinion that the 22-year-old was “priceless,” presumably meaning that they wouldn’t sell him for any fee offered whilst other shouts ranged from £65m to as high as £200m.

Currently, according to Transfermarkt, Neves is valued at £45m – some £30m more than what the west Midlanders reportedly paid for him back in the summer of 2017, per ESPN.

As these comments came following their draw at Old Trafford, other members of the Molineux faithful used it as an opportunity to compare the midfielder to his opposition…

One supporter claimed he is a better player than Paul Pogba while another added that he would be worth £80m as he’s much better than Fernandes.

Per SofaScore, Neves picked up a higher rating (7.7) than his national counterpart (6.8) and also recorded a better passing success rate (82%) and substantially kept hold of possession more with Fernandes losing the ball 23 times compared to the Wolves man’s nine.

Pogba was not involved due to injury.

Although, not everyone was waxing lyrical about Neves…

“Inconsistent” was one word used to describe the 22-year-old with a further member of the travelling support suggesting that he would need to add more goals to his locker in order to be worth upwards of £100m.
