Rúben Neves: “Who wouldn’t want to play for Barcelona?”

Barcelona are in contact with Jorge Mendes over the possible transfer of Wolves’ Rúben Neves, report Mundo Deportivo.

The Blaugrana are in the market for a midfielder that could prove to be the long-term replacement of Sergio Busquets and are thinking about making a move for Neves either this coming January or next summer.

In an interview with Canal 11 in Portugal, the 25-year-old revealed that he would be keen on moving to the Catalan coast:

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

Neves’ contract with Wolves is valid until 2024, but Mendes is keen on negotiating a deal that could see the Portuguese midfielder move to Barcelona in January on loan, with Barça having the option of purchasing him permanently in June 2023.
