Wolves transfer news: Ruben Neves representatives would welcome Manchester United approach

The Gestifute agency would reportedly ‘welcome’ an approach from Manchester United for Wolves star Ruben Neves.

According to Manchester Evening News, Wanderers are now beginning to think about life after the 25-year-old, and are considering replacements for him.

The club apparently ‘expect’ to lose him this summer.

Neves does have a contract with Wolves until 2024. And the club really hope to tie him down to a longer deal.

There have been talks between player and club, as confirmed by Scott Sellars recently.

But Wolves will do well to get him to sign, especially if they don’t secure European football for next season.

Supposedly, the Gestifute Agency, which is headed by Jorge Mendes, would welcome an approach from United in the next window.

United have been linked with Neves several times over the last couple of years.

They are crying out for a holding midfielder. And Neves showed them first-hand his quality at Old Trafford back in January.

There is probably a very good chance they swoop for the Molineux maestro.

And it seems that would be something Mendes would like.

It has also been claimed that incoming manager Erik ten Hag has been a fan of Neves for years and would green light a pursuit.

It’s starting to feel like Ruben Neves will leave Wolves this summer, as report makes Gestifute and Manchester United claim

It is certainly starting to feel as though Neves could finally leave Molineux this summer.

Wolves would obviously love to extend his contract, and talks have been ongoing.

But he’ll have been at the club for five years come this summer, and it just feels like it could be his time to move on. Especially if Wolves don’t have any European football to offer.

If the offer is right, then it is difficult to see Wolves officials standing in his way.

That would be a huge shame, but hopefully the money would be smartly reinvested to help improve the team.
