Wolves opinion: Wolves shouldn’t let go of Ruben Neves
According to a report in Birmingham live, AC Milan are looking to sign Ruben Neves from Wolves. The Portuguese international has been one of the best midfielders in the league from last season and was unlucky not to make the PFA team of the year.
He formed a fantastic partnership with his compatriot Joao Mourinho. Often compared to Xabi Alonso because of us incredible range of long passing and defensive positioning, Neves is one of the best young midfielders in the game. He has all the attributes required of a midfielder. He can pass, he can tackle, he reads the game well, he can create and he can shoot.
The 22-year-old is also popular for his set-pieces and having the ability to score absolute screamers. He came into the limelight after being named captain at Porto at the age of just 19. He would then join Wolves under Nuno Espírito Santo at Wolves in the Championship as they ran away with the league and there was much anticipation about him
Last season, they did something even more remarkable by making it to 7th place in the Premier League, impressing most against the very top teams in the league, including Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester United.
Neves is the poster boy for this current Wolves side, which is why it would be bizarre if they were to allow him to leave now. There is an identity to this side that seems to be lacking in some of the top sides and they shouldn’t let go of any of their starters, especially not Neves.
They have the Europa League qualifiers to deal with as well before the Premier League season starts, which emphasizes the importance of Neves this season. Any links to another club must be dismissed immediately. Wolves have the financial backing and should not be in a position of weakness.
Neves fits in perfectly with Santo’s three-at-the-back system, which allows him to focus on dictating the tempo of the game instead of constantly looking over his shoulder. He’s more than capable of taking defensive responsibility but it’ll take away from other aspects of his game.

Hence, Wolves must not think of doing any deal with any club with regards to Neves and keep him at the club for another season with silverware on the horizon.
