Lage puts GBP100M price tag on Neves

LONDON (AFP) – Bruno Lage reckons Portugal midfielder Ruben Neves will cost GBP100 million (EUR120 million) if he is to be lured away from Wolves.

The 25-year-old is in contract talks about staying at Molineux amid suggested interest from Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United, as well as Spanish giants Barcelona.

“I don’t know if it’s Man United or other teams, what I know is we have a special player here with us,” Wolves manager Lage said ahead of his side’s Premier League visit to Newcastle.

“What he is doing this season is very good. I think also the way we play, he can show a better Ruben, and also the way he plays puts our team on a different level.”

Lage added, “When you have that player, the best thing to do is improve his salary and years of contract.

“But who knows, when you have a top player like him in that specific position, that can defend and attack, and is a top professional and a great man, the big teams are there with GBP100 million to buy these kinds of players.”
