Wolves: 208-game star 'contemplating his future' at Molineux

Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Bruno Lage on the sidelines

Wolverhampton Wanderers favourite Ruben Neves is ‘contemplating his future’ ahead of potentially seeking a Molineux exit in the summer, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

Neves’ £58,000-per-week contract is set to expire in just over 12 months and it appears a number of clubs are looking to pounce on his long-term uncertainty.

What’s the latest news involving Neves?

According to 90min, Neves is ready to leave Wolves amid interest from Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

The report suggests the 26-cap Portugal international has already made it clear to his current employers that he wants to explore other options.

Spanish sources have claimed Neves is dreaming of securing a move to La Liga giants Barcelona in the summer, meaning he would prefer to leave the Premier League if he were to seal his exit.

But Wolves have opened contract talks with the central midfielder as they are keen to see him commit his long-term future to the club.

Regardless of whether Neves puts pen-to-paper, suitors will have to stump up a large sum to lure him away from the West Midlands as head coach Bruno Lage has claimed he is worth £100million.

What has Dean Jones said about Neves?

Jones understands that Neves is toying with the idea of cutting ties with Wolves and moving onto pastures new in the summer.

The transfer insider feels this could be a career-defining window for the Portuguese midfielder, who has made 208 appearances for the club.

Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “Ruben Neves, we all know, has been contemplating his future over the past season.

“It looks like this is a key time in his career and a time when he probably is going to seriously consider switching clubs.”

How has Neves performed this season?

Wolves are still challenging for a European qualification spot and Neves can take a large amount of the credit for that.

The 25-year-old has been a key component of Lage’s midfield and made 32 appearances this term, chipping in with four goals and two assists in the process.

Neves returned to action in last weekend’s 3-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion having recovered from a medial collateral ligament injury picked up against Leeds United in March.

However, he was substituted at the break as Wolves were well beaten at Molineux, meaning they are three points adrift of West Ham United, who currently occupy the Europa Conference League qualification spot.
