Having taken the Championship by storm following his arrival at Wolverhampton Wanderers from Porto in the summer of 2017, Ruben Neves is quickly on the way to legendary status at the Molineux, and having more than proven he can adjust to the Premier League, he’s become a hot topic on the rumour mill.
With previous links to Manchester City and Liverpool as covered, Tottenham Hotspur fans have recently created a few headlines as they praised our 22-year-old but a report in the foreign media had led some to believe that he’s high on their wishlist for the summer and it’s pretty much left Wolves fans laughing.
The original report seems to stem from El Gol and to me it looks purely speculative and doesn’t make any actual claim other than his fee has gone up to 50 million Euros, but for some reason it has gained traction – as these things tend to do.
Is that for his shoe lace ?

He maybe top of their list but it doesn’t mean he is going or if they could afford him ✊️

Is that a payment for first refusal on him?

What's the €50m? Deposit or am I missing something?

No disrespect to Atleti given how La Liga is dominated but if Neves unfortunately ever wants to move on, his quality dictates different potential destinations.
