Midfield ace Joao Moutinho has warned that Wolves have to focus on the here and now and not on the potential of an even brighter tomorrow at Molineux.
Ahead of a Saturday trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United, the veteran Portugal international insists that taking care of business game by game has to be the main priority for the newly-promoted outfit.
His caution comes with Wolves having lost just one of their five Premier League games so far this season, with the club having undergone huge changes following the arrival of head coach Nuno Espirito Santo at the start of last season.
Moutinho told the Shropshire Star: "We need to talk about the reality, the present. If you do a good present, you can be better the next year.
"You need to focus 100 per cent on this year, as it's very important. After that, we see what is better.
"If we do good things (this season), I think it’s easier for the club to spend more money on more very good players – and it is easier for players to want to come here."
Wolves have been beaten on all four of their previous Premier League visits to Old Trafford, the last of which came in December 2011, when they lost 4-1 to the Red Devils.
The Midlanders are 14/5 to secure a draw on Saturday, with a 1-1 final scoreline priced at 7/1, while Wolves are available at 4/7 to finish in the top half of the table come the end of the season.
