Reports in Italy suggest Juventus are now favourites to sign the player, who has also attracted interests from clubs like Manchester United and Manchester City.
It was Portuguese agent Jorge Mendes who helped Juventus sign Joao Cancelo and Cristiano Ronaldo from Valencia and Real Madrid respectively. Now, it is reported that he will likely help Juventus sign his client Ruben Neves, who has attracted the likes of numerous English Premier League clubs including Manchester United.
Earlier, it was reported that Mourinho, another client of Jorge Mendes, would sign Ruben Neves for Manchester United, beating Manchester City in the process. According to reports, the Portuguese agent was in Turin for talks with Juventus president Andrea Agnelli and sporting director Fabio Paratici and it is said that they also discussed Ruben Neves making a move to Juventus, who are looking to conquer Europe this time.
Ruben Neves played a key role in helping Wolverhampton Wanderers gain promotion to the Premier League. The Portuguese midfielder has impressed for the newly-promoted side in the Premier League, but recently penned down a new long-term contract with the Wolves.
Wolverhampton Wanderers will find it extremely difficult to keep hold of their player with top clubs eying his signature. It remains to be seen how much clubs will spend to sign the Portuguese midfielder who according to many is the next big thing from Portuguese football.
Reports in the media suggest that Wolves would demand more than 100 million Euros for the player and it is highly unlikely that Juventus will splash such a staggering amount to sign the player. With Jorge Mendes who helped Juve materialize Ronaldo transfer, nothing is impossible.
Neves is one for the future and certainly has what it takes to dominate the footballing world in the coming years. At 21, he has already impressed a host of top clubs and if he keeps on developing the way he does, he will certainly have a huge impact wherever he plays. It is unlikely that he will continue playing for Wolves until the end of his contract, but his next destination is not confirmed, yet.
