Neves has started the season in fine fettle, and scored his third goal of the season at the weekend against Brentford.

The Portuguese maestro has stopped Wolves from being cut adrift so far, and his importance to the team is absolutely colossal.

In recent week, reports have been surfacing about interest from Barcelona.

They are looking to bring in a long-term replacement for Sergio Busquets.

The reports have continued on from the summer, and it seems the Catalan giants do consider him a strong option.

But they also like Martin Zubimendi of Real Sociedad.

Fans are concern about what may happen in January.

But according to Keen, the club have no interest in selling him in the winter window.

Sharing Neves’ latest Instagram post, he wrote: “Wolves have absolutely no interest in selling him in January with the position they are in. Would take a big offer – but sadly his departure has been on the cards for a while and will come at some point. For now, he is crucial to this team.”

That information will allow some fans to breathe a little easier.

Wolves must rebuff any offers for Ruben Neves in January – the club’s Premier League survival hopes hinge on him

Wolves mustn’t sell Neves in the next window. Even if a big offer comes in. It is as simple as that.

Not only is Neves a top-class midfielder and Wolves’ best player, but he has also become a brilliant leader.

He’s assumed the captain’s armband from Conor Coady and carried it superbly well.

You can tell he cares deeply about the club, and he is fighting every game.

Wolves can’t afford to lose this kind of leadership, on top of all those other experienced players that departed the club in the summer.
