Wolves: Sky Sports man has say on star midfielder’s future

Sky Sports presenter Joe Thomlison has had his say on Ruben Neves’ future at Wolverhampton Wanderers, stating that he believes the midfielder should force a move.

The Football Daily pundit said on Football Daily show ‘Sunday Vibes’“If I was Ruben Neves, I would be potentially forcing a move. The issue he’s got is that he’s got legendary status at that club.

“Now, if you’re him, I think you’ve got to force the issue. I think you’ve got to get out of the door.” (34:00) 

As things stand, it looks as though Neves is staying put at Wolves. But, there’s still just over a month left of the transfer window, and a lot can happen in that time.

The Portugal midfielder will naturally have ambitions of playing Champions League football, or in some form of European competition at the very least. And he could begin to question whether that is achievable at Wolves, who finished 10th last season.

Neves’ current contract expires in 2024, which means that next summer will be one of Wolves’ last chances to gain some funds from his potential departure. After the summer of 2023, the Midlands club would likely lose him for free upon the expiry of his contract.

TIF Thoughts on Ruben Neves…

Ruben Neves is a player with the necessary quality to play in the Champions League. Just by looking at the numbers, that become obvious. Compared to Tottenham Hotspur’s Rodrigo Bentancur, for example, via Fbref, Neves completes more dribbles, attempts more passes, and registers more assists per-90. 

Neves may not force a move away from Wolves this summer, but, with two years left on his current contract, time is certainly ticking on his time left at the Midlands club.
