Wolves boss imposes huge price tag on Ruben Neves amid Tottenham links – Reuters Sports News
Bruno Lage has claimed Wolves value Ruben Neves at £100m ahead of the summer transfer window.
Antonio Conte reportedly wants Spurs to make six new signings this summer, including two midfielders (The telegraph).
Neves is seen as one of the options on Tottenham’s radar according to 90 minutesthe midfielder reportedly informed Wolves of his desire to leave.
The report adds that Spurs face competition from Arsenal, Manchester United, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid for the 25-year-old, but explains there is no clear favorite in the race in the current state of affairs.
Lage has now opened up on Neves’ future, admitting he sees the Portugal international as an important part of his pans.
However, he insisted that a club like Wolves are always ready to sell their star players for the right offer if it gives them an opportunity to rebuild, and he put the midfielder’s value at 100million. of pounds sterling.
Lage said sky sports about Neves: “We have to be ready for anything. A player like Ruben Neves is worth £100m. Anything can happen, not just with Ruben.
“We have to wait for an offer, we have nothing, we have to wait for an offer and understand what (is going to) really happen. What is good for the club, good for the player.
“For me it’s clear, if I want to work with Ruben, yes. If you ask the player if he wants to work for me, for sure he will say yes. But that’s football and you don’t never know what may happen the next day.
“We can prepare the best strategy, for what we want, which is the best players on the pitch. I have no problem with anyone in this position, but if everyone is available , I will choose Reuben.

I think Lage was just pointing out that Wolves couldn’t refuse a ridiculous offer. If the reports that Neves wants to leave are true, his value is likely to be closer to the £50million range, given that he has just two years left to fulfill his contract (transfer market).
Wolves wouldn’t want to rule the 25-year-old out of a move this summer and then be forced to let him go on a reduced fee 12 months later.
