The Portuguese midfielder suddenly attracted interest from a La Liga giant.
Ruben Neves shares about Ronaldo
After steady and impressive performances under Wolves in recent years, it can be affirmed that Ruben Neves is currently one of the best central midfielders in the Premier League. Therefore, many big teams have long added the Portuguese star’s name to their target list, typically Manchester United.
Neves has actually been targeted by Man Utd during the past many transfer windows, but so far, the Old Trafford team has not yet concretized its interest in action. And it is expected that this slowness will make the Red Devils face the risk of losing the service of the 25-year-old midfielder.
Will Neves move to Camp Nou?
A source from Mundo Deportivo confirmed (quoted by Goal), Barcelona are currently planning to find a long-term replacement for Sergio Busquets, and Neves is their top target. Notably, this is also almost the first time that the Blaugrana has been linked to the midfielder by the media.
In fact, this is a rather surprising move for Barca, because they already have a lot of potential young midfielders who can replace Busquets in the future. Moreover, Neves is also not a true defensive midfielder like Busquets, instead, he tends to operate like a shuttle midfielder.
