Wolves set to lose Ruben Neves if they fail to qualify for Europe amid Man Utd and Arsenal transfer interest
MANCHESTER UNITED and Arsenal transfer target Ruben Neves may leave Wolves if they don't qualify for Europe, reports suggest.
That is according to transfer insider Dean Jones, who claims the Midlands giants will struggle to hold on to Neves if they can't offer him European football next season.
Bruno Lage's men are eighth in the Premier League table with two points separating them from seventh-placed Tottenham, who have a game in hand.
Wolves would have to finish seventh to guarantee at least Europa Conference League qualification.
Jones told Give Me Sport: “His quality is undoubted, and I think that if they don’t qualify for Europe then it’ll probably be time to say goodbye.”
United and the Gunners have been keeping tabs on Neves since last summer and could make an improved bid at the end of the season.

The Red Devils have been struggling in midfield this term and look set to lose Paul Pogba, who becomes a free agent in June.
Arsenal, on the other hand, also need to strengthen in the middle of the park as they are in pole position to play in the Champions League next season.
Neves joined Wolves from Porto in 2017 following a £15million deal with the Portuguese giants.
The midfielder has since amassed a total of 24 goals and 12 assists in 206 appearances.
