Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves has been linked with an exit from Molineux this summer, with several clubs said to be interested.
Premier League giants Manchester United have been credited with an interest in the 24-year-old.
While Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are also said to be keen on him.
However, the Portuguese footballer’s recent comments suggested that he wants to stay at the West Midlands club.
Since joining the Wanderers in 2017, he has been a consistent performer for the English side.
The talented midfielder helped his side earn promotion to the top-flight in 2018 and has been impressive for them in the Premier League as well.
However, after the departure of Nuno Espirito Santo in May, the 24-year-old has been linked with a move to a bigger club.
But Neves revealed he is “really happy to work” with the new coach Bruno Lage, suggesting that he is keen to stay.
“He’s a very good coach,” he told Wolves TV (as per Mirror). “I am really happy to work with him.
“I spoke with a few friends when he signed for Wolves – that were players in Benfica and are good friends of mine – and they said a lot of good things about him.
“I can see it now. He’s a very good coach with lots of good ideas. I think that when things are completely together, we’ll be a really hard team to beat.”
Manchester United have just signed Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund and Raphael Varane from Real Madrid.
For buying more players, they will need to offload some deadwood.
Neves, who has proved his skills in the English top-flight, would be a very shrewd signing for United.
However, his recent comments don’t give a lot of hope for the Red Devils that they can secure a deal.
