Wolves Slap Ridiculous Price Tag On Star Player Ruben Neves
Ruben Neves moved to Wolves in a shock £15.8 million move in 2017 but fast forward to the present day and the Molineux club value him at an eye-watering amount.
After his impressive performances in the Championship last season along with his fine midfield displays in his first few games as a Premier League player, the Portugal international has attracted plenty of interest from top European clubs.
Both Manchester clubs and Juventus have been linked with the 21-year old, who was tied down to a new lucrative five-year deal in the summer.
But according to Duncan Castles from The Times, Wolves and their Chinese owners will demand a Premier League record transfer if any tries to negotiate a deal for Neves.
City are looking at Ruben Neves and are working to discover his situation/Wolves' plans. Txiki Begiristain and Jorge Mendes get on really well, though apparently Mourinho has got word of it and isn't happy.

Paul Pogba returned to Manchester United for a whopping £89 million in 2016 yet Wolves have slapped a crazy £110 million price tag on their star player.

Following a season where he scored six goals from outside of the box as Wolves stormed the second tier, he made the PFA Championship Team of the Year last term.
In his first Premier League appearance, Neves curled in a stunning free-kick against Everton in August and already looks like he has the capacity to play at a much bigger club.
Still, even with the inflated market that exists today, £110 million is surely far too steep?
