Ruben Neves has established himself as an important player for Wolverhampton Wanderers, and his consistency in the team has attracted the attention of other Premier League clubs, including Manchester United, and now the midfielder has spoken out on the rumours.
The 24 year old Portuguese player did an interview with Record addressing his future with Wolves and his thoughts on the transfer rumours circulating about him.
According to Portuguese newspaper, Record (via Sport Witness);
“It’s normal in football. Whenever there’s a transfer market there’s a lot of talk, but my goal and focus are on Wolverhampton and I’m not going to change that, things have been going really well for me.”
He added: “I still have a lot to learn, I have a lot to give here. The future will be seen soon, I like to live in the present and I’m happy, I feel great at Wolverhampton and I’ll focus here, because if I do things right I’m sure the future will be bright. My goal will always be to give my best and give even more for the club.”
Neves has had eighteen appearances this season for Wolves in all competitions, with one goal and one assist to his name so far in their current Premier League campaign.
Ruben Neves has offered up 191 appearances so far for the club with 21 goals and 11 assists from his defensive midfielder role, staying loyal to the club after joining them in the Championship back in July 2017.
Fans would see a move away from the club as a huge loss with some taking to Twitter after the Manchester United transfer rumours began. One supporter reacted to the rumours, tweeting: “The thought of Neves leaving Wolves is so so so sad man.”
Lage could make his first big mistake by allowing a bid for the £36m-rated gem, to distract from the path Wolves have worked so hard to get on, from the Championship to the top half of the Premier League table which the 24 year old midfielder has been a part of, every step of the way.
The transfer window opens in just a few days now and the Wolves manager will need to determine not only the players he wants to add into the team in January, but also make a clear decision on which players he would be happy to let go of, without the consequence of failing to continue their impressive run of form in the league in the second half of the season.
