Tottenham is negotiating a long-term contract with Ruben Neves, which will be a blow to Manchester United.
Ruben Neves of Wolves might join Tottenham before the transfer window closes at 11 p.m.
According to rumours, Ruben Neves might join Tottenham for £34 million before the summer transfer market closes at 11 p.m. tonight. This summer, Neves has been linked with a move to Manchester United, but it appears like Spurs may be preparing to sabotage the deal.
Neves has played every minute of Wolves’ first three Premier League games, all of which have ended in 1-0 defeats to Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester United.
However, in recent days, talk over his future has picked up speed.
Since moving to the west midlands from Porto in 2017, the 24-year-old has been a star performer for Wolves.
He was a key role in Wolves’ promotion from the Championship in 2018 and has continued to be so in the Premier League.
The Red Devils are reportedly interested in signing the Portugal international this summer as they hunt for a top-flight midfielder.

Spurs have now approached Neves, according to Portuguese media, and he may end up in north London.
Spurs have been in excellent form so far this season, and they now sit atop the Premier League standings with nine points.
On the opening weekend of the season, Tottenham overcame Manchester City 1-0 before defeating Wolves and Watford by the same margin.
And the announcement that star striker Harry Kane will stay at the club has given them a boost this summer.
Champions City were interested in signing Kane, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy refused to approve a transfer, forcing the England captain to stay put.
Tottenham’s team is starting to take shape, with the club already bringing in Cristian Romero and Pierluigi Gollini from Atalanta, as well as Bryan Gil from Sevilla and Pape Matar Sarr from Metz.
In recent days, they’ve been linked with a move for Barcelona’s Emerson Royal.
Meanwhile, star player Son Heung-min has started the season on fire, while a reinvigorated Dele Alli has been given the opportunity to shine in midfield.
If Neves joins Spurs, he will be able to play with Dele Alli. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
