Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly set a mouthwatering £60 million price tag for star winger Pedro Neto amid interest from Manchester City and Newcastle United.

The Old Gold are under no pressure to let Neto go this summer but a record sale could give head coach Gary O’Neil the opportunity to rebuild ahead of next season. With such little squad depth currently at Molineux and with the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules causing issues, Neto’s departure could prove necessary.

Hamstring injuries got in the way of what could’ve been a tremendous 2023/24 season. Neto notched two goals and nine assists in 20 Premier League matches but both tallies would likely have been far higher had fitness issues not stumped his progress.

Already a five-time Portugal international, the 24-year-old is progressing nicely to realise the sky-high potential Wolves anticipated when they signed him for £15 million from Lazio back in 2019.

The Telegraph reports Man City and Newcastle have both made Neto a priority transfer target this summer. It’s claimed Wolves will demand around £60 million to let their star winger leave, enough to break the previous record sale of Matheus Nunes to City, a deal worth £53 million.

Neto has scored 14 goals and made 24 assists in a total of 135 matches for Wolves. He’s also made a handful of appearances elsewhere, with five at Lazio and three at SC Braga. Just eight appearances in the UEFA Europa League mean continental experience is lacking but he’d soon build that at either the Etihad Stadium or St James’ Park.
