According to previous reports, the president of the Catalan club, Joan Laporta, and Neves’ representative, Jorge Mendes, have reached a verbal agreement for his signing. The Portuguese midfielder is expected to sign a four-year deal with Barcelona, as revealed by The Sun.
Despite the interest shown by other clubs, such as Arsenal, Neves has decided to reject, at least for now, the proposals that have come his way, since his priority is to join the Blaugrana team. However, should the deal with Barcelona fall through, Arsenal could be an option the talented Portuguese player would seriously consider.
The offer that Rúben Neves rejected to wait for FC Barcelona
It is important to mention that coach Xavi Hernández and Barcelona’s sports management have other options in mind to reinforce the position of midfielder. Players like Martín Zubimendi or Joshua Kimmich are preferences for the Catalan club. However, any movement in the market is subject to financial restrictions imposed by financial ‘fair play’.
The possible arrival of Rúben Neves at Barcelona would be a huge boost for the team, as the Portuguese midfielder is known for his game vision, technical ability and ability to win balls back. The incorporation of him would strengthen Barcelona’s midfield and offer more options to the coach to put together his tactical scheme. The Barcelona fans are waiting for official news about the signing of Neves and remain excited about the possibilities that his arrival could offer the team.
The transfer market continues its course and it will be necessary to be attentive to the next movements of Barcelona and other clubs in search of strengthening their ranks for the next season.
