Ruben Neves entry to Barcelona not open anymore


According to reports, Barcelona decided against pursuing a summer transfer move for Ruben Neves. The Portuguese midfielder currently plays for Wolves. In the past, Neves expressed his desire to play for Barcelona and praised the club and Xavi.

Last year in October 2022 Neves said:

“Who wouldn’t want to play for Barcelona? If you ask in general, all the players want to play for Barca, one of the best clubs in the world. It’s a privilege for me to be associated with this team.”

What do the reports say about Ruben Neves arrival?

However, according to Diario Sport, it seems highly unlikely that Ruben Neves will join Barcelona in the upcoming transfer window. The report suggests that Xavi is not particularly fond of Neves as a suitable target. Hence, he convinced the club to explore other options.

According to the same report, Manchester United is a potential destination for Neves. As they are reportedly keen to strengthen their midfield during the summer transfer window.

If Barcelona decides to bolster their midfield, it appears that Ilkay Gundogan is the most probable candidate to arrive in the summer. Since Busquets is leaving the club soon, the Catalans are desperate for a new holding midfielder to replace him. Even though, De jong sometimes plays the role of Busquets in the field, they are looking for a proper backup. Hence, Ruben Neves and Gundogan seemingly looks like the proper fit for Barcelona and they will try to obtain any one this summer transfer window.
