Ruben Neves was keen on moving to Barcelona. But the Blaugrana are unwilling to sign Portugal international in the summer because Xavi prefers a different profile of midfielder. Neves reportedly has interest from PL teams Liverpool and Man United as well.
Initially, Ruben was keen on moving away from the PL. But due to Barcelona’s stance, the 25-year-old midfielder is prepared to consider offers from England. And it stays to be seen whether Liverpool and Man United can convince the Portuguese midfielder to join them.
The Red Devils need to bring in upgrades on footballers like Fred and McTominay as well. Both Liverpool and Man United have the financial resources to pull off the transfer. And it stays to be seen where the Portuguese ends up eventually. A footballer of his quality might want to compete in the UCL next campaign.
And in that case, Man United might hold an advantage. The Red Devils are well placed to finish in the top four as compared to Liverpool, who are currently tenth in the league table. Managers like Jurgen Klopp and Erik ten Hag have a proven track record of improving footballers.
And they could help the former Porto midfielder improve further and develop as a player. Neves’ agent, Jorge Mendes has given preference to Barcelona when it comes to the interest in his client. But the Portuguese super agent is unwilling to dither any longer and is prepared to consider offers from PL teams now.
