Wolves fans react to reports of potential Ruben Neves and Andre Silva swap

AC Milan will reportedly offer Andre Silva in an attempt to sign Neves from Premier League high-flyers Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have been handed a golden chance to finally sign Andre Silva, the Portuguese number nine they have allegedly wanted since January 2018.

But there is a caveat. If Wolves want to bring Silva to Molineux at long last, they’d have to sacrifice none other than Ruben Neves.

According to Italian publication Sport Mediaset, AC Milan are hoping that a bid of £13.5 million, plus their misfit centre-forward Silva, will be enough to convince Wolves to let Neves move to the San Siro.

And this has received a rather short shrift from fans of the Black Country outfit.

After all, Neves is one of the most talented players Wolves have ever seen in 'old gold'. He’s a real fans’ favourite too and has shown remarkable levels of commitment to the club he joined for a club-record fee from Porto two years ago.

Silva, meanwhile, has endured a miserable two years since he joined AC Milan for £33 million in 2017. He’s scored just 11 league goals in the last two seasons, two for Milan and nine in a loan spell at Sevilla that started brightly and ended in huge disappointment and concerns over his fitness.

This one should be a no brainer for Wolves. It’s a ‘no’ all the way.
