WOLVES expect Ruben Neves to leave Molineux this summer, according to reports.
The Portugal star has drawn strong interest from the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool.
Molineux chiefs expected to lose Neves, who they value at around £50million, last summer – and were pleasantly surprised when a transfer didn’t materialise.
But with the 26-year-old set to have one year remaining on his contract at the end of the season, the Mirror claim that Wolves bosses appear resigned to losing him this time around.
Man United and Liverpool are set to be put on high alert by Neves’ situation.
But they could face some strong competition from abroad.
Barcelona and Real Madrid are both believed to be monitoring Neves with interest.
And Wolves would rather sell their talisman to a club abroad, rather than a Prem rival.
Irrespective of strong interest from elsewhere, Neves is unlikely to kick up a fuss.
The midfielder has a brilliant relationship with club chiefs at Molineux, having played there since 2017.

And if a move wasn’t to materialise this summer, he could even pen a new deal in September so as not to leave Wolves for nothing in 2024.
Neves has made 244 appearances for Wolves since joining from Porto in 2017.
He helped them to the Championship title in his first season, as well as playing a key role in their run to the Europa League quarter-finals in the 2019-20 campaign.
