The mercurial talent of Ruben Neves has been one of Nuno Espirito Santo’s star performers since his arrival at the debut.
Back in 2017, his signing was a statement of intent and Neves didn’t disappoint, hitting six unbelievable goals and scooping the Player and Players’ Player of the Season awards as the club reached the Premier League.
The final of his six goals was a sensational volley against Derby County, which was enough to win the Goal of the Season award.
For Neves, it all started at the Porto Academy, where he progressed to make 67 senior appearances for the Primeira Liga side.
International honours followed, with Neves making his way up the age groups of Portugal to earn his first full cap in 2015.
In the same year Neves became the youngest captain in Champions League history as he led Porto out against Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Following a sensational first campaign at Molineux, the midfielder continued to impress in the Premier League from the moment his stunning free-kick kicked off the 2018/19 campaign.
Brilliant goals have continued, not least against Manchester United in August 2019, as Neves goes from strength to strength in old gold.
