Wolves star Ruben Neves has been speaking about his desire to return to playing in the Champions League.

The midfield maestro has already experienced the competition with FC Porto.

He gave that up in the summer of 2017 to join Wolves in the Championship.

And Neves has proven to be an amazing signing for Wolves, with many supporters still surprised he joined and is still here to this day.

Neves has been going from strength to strength during his time at Molineux.

This season, he has undoubtedly been one of Wolves’ best players, and has responded really well to Bruno Lage coming in as the new manager in the summer.

He’s had several masterclass performances this season, and is very much looking like a player befitting of the Champions League.

Neves has said he wants to return to the competition. He said it would be ‘perfect’ if he could that with Wolves.

Unfortunately, Wolves are still quite far off making it into the competition.

There is the Big Six, and then teams like West Ham United and Leicester City also dream of playing in Europe’s best club competition.

But Wolves have the potential to make it in one day – it’s just about how ambitious Fosun are prepared to be.

Ruben Neves comments should spring Fosun into action

You’ve got a Champions League-quality player saying it would be ‘perfect’ to play in the competition with Wolves.

Fosun should be seeing these comments and doing everything they can to help the club get there.

It’s clear Neves loves the club and is happy. He probably genuinely wants to play Champions League football in old gold.

Wolves are currently far off competing at that level, but they don’t need to be.

With adequate investment from the owners, Wolves have the potential to finish in that top four. Or qualify for the competition via winning the FA Cup.

Bruno Lage has shown what he can do with fairly limited resources.

Should Fosun give him the right tools, and seek to build around Neves rather than cash in on him, there is a chance.
