Ruben Neves has claimed that speculation surrounding some of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ stars will not distract from their Premier League restart next month. Neves himself has been consistently linked with moves to some of the biggest names in European football, since his shock Molineux arrival in 2017. His signing in that summer was a huge step in Wolves’ rise from the Championship to top-four contenders – a rise that has seen a number of his teammates also linked with big-money exits.
Ruben Neves said: “There has always been speculation since I’ve got here about our team. But we don’t think about it. We want to be together for as much time as we can but it’s football, the speculation will always be there. Our job is to play and leave this for the people who need to take care of it. We are really excited – even more so after that training session because we could finally play proper football. So far we had only trained individually or in small groups without contact.”
