On his Transfer Window podcast, he spoke about the Portugal midfielder’s future at Molineux.
He said the asking price if Neves is to leave this summer is £50 million, although there’s a chance it could be lowered to £40 million.
Castles also said that Wolves turned down £60 million from Manchester City for Neves two years ago, when they held out for a £80 million bid which never came.
Back in May, it was claimed that Wolves were looking for £35 million for Neves this summer. That didn’t go down too well with some Wolves fans.
The supporters who responded to this latest valuation don’t want Neves to go. But if he does, they feel £50 million is a more suitable price.
Here’s how Castles’ update went down on Twitter as Wolves prepare for their second game of pre-season on Saturday against Real Betis:
If we get 50m for him then that’s good would obviously rather him stay but 50m is a decent price and we could get palhinha then and maybe another cb or st— ryan_lucas_ (@Wolvoryan04) July 22, 2021
Never expected Neves to stay at @Wolves for four seasons, so although it's doubtful any team will pay £50M it would be good business…if a replacement is in the pipeline!— Energy Angels & Wolves (@EnergyWolves) July 22, 2021
Much better. Now don't budge on that amount. Not an inch.— Tony Wilde 🇮🇪🐺 (@TonyWilde99) July 22, 2021
Is it just me that thinks the club should be working on him staying? All players have doubts but if we want to progress we need to keep our best players— chris pepper (@christo13027415) July 22, 2021
Didn’t Buendia go for £35 million and he’s had 1 season in the prem so Neves definitely should be more— Dan Bowen (@DanBowe21102889) July 22, 2021
If we get 50 for Neves and can get Paulinia for 30 I wouldn't mind that at all put 20 towards a decent cb then— … (@Fabiofury46) July 22, 2021
If we do sell Neves which i dont want us to but if they do i hope man utd and arsenal keep out bidding eachother so we can get more than that and i know wolves would lined a new signing if they did sell tbh— Ben smith (@Bensmit76265991) July 22, 2021
Wouldn't be happy with anything less if he is to go.— FPL_BakedBeans (@FPL_BakedBeans) July 22, 2021
Should not be leaving for any less than £50M @Wolves— 𝑺𝒖𝒑𝒆𝒓 𝑹𝒐𝒎𝒂𝒊𝒏 𝑺𝒂𝒊𝒔𝒔 🇲🇦 (@WWFCJoel) July 22, 2021
