BREAKING NEWS : Gary O’Neil now drops interesting verdict on the future of Pedro Neto at Wolves

Wolves boss Gary O’Neil has given an unusual verdict on Pedro Neto’s future at Molineux after the summer transfer window.

It’s going to be a fascinating summer for Wolves, as Gary O’Neil looks for much-needed reinforcements while also hoping to keep key players. A number of the Old Gold’s finest players have been linked to a move, with the club hoping to prevent a repeat of last summer’s situation.

Choosing whether to keep or sell every Wolves player this summer.

Financial constraints caused Wolves to part ways with some of its most prized players, notably Ruben Neves and Matheus Nunes, who left with no room to be replaced by Fosun’s budget.

While adding to the squad’s depth will be critical in the upcoming transfer window if the club is to thrive under O’Neil, retaining players is also key, with the future of Pedro Neto a storyline that has circled Wolves this season.

Gary O’Neil says Pedro Neto would be comfortable with staying at Wolves next season.
Neto, 24, is one of Wolves’ most prized assets in the current squad, with interest in the winger increasing throughout the 2023/24 season as a result of his blistering early-season form.

Now, O’Neil has spoken out on Neto’s future, revealing that he is unsure how the attacker will react if a bid comes in this summer, as reported by Express & Star.

“I don’t know how he’ll feel if or when an offer comes from a large club; obviously, it may turn your head, but at this point in time, if we told him there’s no offers coming in and he’ll be at Wolves next

season, he’d be very content with that.” The boss revealed that the 24-year-old is a dedicated member of the Wolves squad, stating that he is “really happy” to be at Molineux despite speculation over his future with the club.

The Pedro Neto transfer scenario is tricky for Wolves ahead of the summer.
Metro claimed in February that the Old Gold could seek a cost of up to £80 million for Neto, who was proving unplayable on the right flank in the Premier League.
If such a number was proposed in the summer, Wolves would be hard-pressed to turn it down, given that, despite his talent, the Portuguese winger is relatively replaceable in O’Neil’s squad.

Of course, Wolves would prefer to keep Neto, but the manager has been able to do without him this season, despite the 24-year-old’s campaign being plagued by injury once more, with only 19 Premier League appearances to date.

The Midlands club’s improvement begins with O’Neil’s ability to add depth and quality to his team, with a fee for Neto providing the opportunity to replace a variety of areas at the risk of losing the exciting potential.

It will be an interesting story to monitor this summer, as Wolves will undoubtedly demand a hefty price for their prized treasure if he is to create interest.
