Ruben Neves Agrees Shock Move To Wolves

If you were to hear that Ruben Neves, one of the finest young talents in world football, was set to complete a move to an English club, ordinarily you would imagine the 20-year-old midfielder would be joining one of the Premier League's top six clubs.

You would probably not, for a second, imagine that Neves would be signing for a club who finished 15th in the Championship, last season.

But, somehow, that is indeed the case, with the Porto midfielder agreeing to sign for Wolves.

Record in Portugal are reporting that the deal between Porto and the Championship outfit were 'formalised' yesterday and now Never will travel to the midlands to complete his switch to Molineaux within the next week.

Given that last summer, rumours were abound that Benfica midfielder Taliscsa would be moving to the midlands club, before the move failed to materialise, there was originally some doubt over the Neves reports.

However, it is now being reported as a done deal, worth somewhere in the region of £17.5 million, a fee that would smash Wolves' transfer record and deliver to them a player who, just under two years ago became the youngest ever to captain a team in the Champions League when he wore the armband for Porto during their group stage clash with Maccabi Tel Aviv, aged just 18 years and 221 days.

Never has represented his country at U16, U17, U18, U21 U23 and full international level and was part of the Portugal U21 team that finished runners up at the 2015 European Championships.

You will be hard pressed to find a transfer as utterly bizarre as this for a long time.
