Arsenal, Man Utd learn asking price for Premier League star

According to reports, Wolves have set their asking price for Ruben Neves, amid reports linking him with the likes of Arsenal and Man Utd.

Wolves have been one of the surprise packages in the Premier League this season. They currently sit eighth in the table and they are in contention to qualify for Europe.

Neves continues to be a standout player for the West Midlands outfit. He has only missed two league games this term as he has played 27 times.

The Portugal international has been linked with a move away from Wolves. Arsenal and Man Utd appear to be the sides most interested in him.

Barcelona have also been linked with the Wolves star. AS (via Sport Witness) are reporting that the Spaniards have now ‘ruled out’ a move for Neves, though.

They have learned that Wolves value him at €50m (£41m). Barcelona are not willing to pay this fee ‘under any circumstances’. They view this deal as being too ‘expensive’.

Speaking in February, Neves criticised Arsenal for celebrating their 1-0 win at Molineux “like they won the league”.

The Gunners edged past Wolves in a scrappy match thanks to Gabriel’s first-half goal.

Gabriel Martinelli was shown a bizarre red card by referee Michael Oliver, meaning Mikel Arteta’s men really had to dig deep in the last 20 minutes to see out the victory.

Neves said: “We did well but we are struggling to score goals and conceding a lot on set-pieces. With their goal there is some doubt about whether it was a foul or not but that’s football. We are used to these decisions.

“We need to improve a lot on scoring goals because we are creating chances but we’re not good enough in that part of the game.

“I can accept the decision about their goal but in some games they give it and in some games they don’t. They need to do the same decisions in every game because it’s frustrating for us.

“We saw the way they celebrated the win and that shows the level we are. I didn’t see Arsenal celebrating like this in the past 10 years – it was like they won the league.”
