In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Steve Bull, who is a Wolverhampton Wanderers Hall of Famer, has claimed that whenever he’s seen Pedro Neto at the training ground or Molineux he has been smiling and happy.
Neto has impressed during an indifferent season for Wolves which has attracted interest from Manchester United who are reportedly preparing a £50 million bid, however Bull told FFC last month that it should be closer to £75 million.
The Portuguese winger is only in his second season with Wolves but in the absence of Raul Jimenez, the £50,000-per-week winger has stepped up and has the most goals and assists at the club this campaign.
Speaking on how the fans have helped make Neto at home in the Midlands and how he always seems happy in and around the club, Bull told FFC:
“He’s delivered the goods on the pitch so the fans have taken to him really well by cheering him on every week, but I can’t think of any reason why he’d leave.
“When I see him at the training ground he’s got a massive smile on his face and that’s a big part of our football club, because I think if you see players with smiles on their faces when they’re working hard, then you know they’re in a happy place.”
It was reported by The Athletic earlier this week that Fosun International, the Wolves owners, will be looking to cut back on their usual transfer spending this summer.
Wolves have been looking for a box-to-box midfielder to potentially replace Joao Moutinho and Josh Brownhill is one name that has been touted as a potential signing.
