But according to Calcio Mercato, it is PSG who will make a move to buy Neves next year.

The 21-year-old joined Wolves from Porto in 2017 and was the standout player in a remarkable season as the club returned to the Premier League.

Neves, brought in by super-agent Jorge Mendes, played a key role in the heart of the midfield and scored a number of long-range stunners.

And he begun his first season in England’s top flight in similar fashion, smashing in a free-kick against Everton on the opening weekend.
