Ruben Neves next club: Man Utd linked with summer swoop for Wolves star

Thu, 8 March 2018, 14:01

With the season in England in its final phase, Wolverhampton Wanderers are still propping up the Championship table ahead of their in-form rivals, and one of their starring players this campaign has been Ruben Neves. The Portuguese star is now rumoured to be a summer target for Manchester United, so What Are The Odds looks at the Ruben Neves next club odds market to see whether or not the Molineux faithful should or shouldn't be worried.

The 20-year old central midfielder for Wolves arrived in the Midlands last summer from FC Porto for a eye-watering, club record undisclosed fee - which is said to be over £15m. Since his arrival, and over 30 league appearances now in the bag, the Championship side have stormed the division and look nailed on for automatic promotion back to the Premier League. Neves has even chipped in with four goals, further increasing his importance and value to a hugely ambitious Wolves side.

However, such form and reputation has put Manchester United in the frame to make a summer swoop for the youngster. Bookmaker Sky Bet are currently offering odds of 10/3 (4.33) on Mourinho to swoop for Neves as United look to freshen up their midfield options and kick on for the title next season. With Wolves in no need of the money and unlikely to even want to entertain such offers, the Old Trafford outfit would likely have to pay way over the odds for a player still untested at Premier League level.

With promotion looking extremely likely for Wolves this season and the club’s wealthy owners set to fund a Premier League push in the summer, odds of 1/5 (1.20) on Ruben Neves staying for at least another season will give supporters relief, despite the potential advances of Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.
