Barcelona and Ruben Neves have reportedly finalised the agreement over personal terms, with the 26-year-old ready to move to Camp Nou.
According to reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Ruben Neves has agreed to the personal terms that Barcelona offered him. And the 26-year-old is ready to wait for the Blaugrana to submit a bid to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Meanwhile, his market value currently stands at around €40 million.
Ruben Neves has gone from strength to strength since joining Wolverhampton Wanderers from FC Porto. The Portuguese international has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League during his stint with the Black Country outfit, despite the club’s inconsistency.
The 26-year-old has made over 250 appearances for Wolverhampton Wanderers, with his market value rising to €40 million. But Neves’s contract with the Midlands club will end in a little over 12 months. And such a situation has alerted several high-profile clubs, including Barcelona.
Neves has been on Barcelona’s radar for a long time. And the Catalan giants have considered signing him from Wolverhampton Wanderers on a few occasions previously. But Barcelona’s precarious financial situation always stopped them from launching the offensive for the 26-year-old.
However, with Neves’s contract with the Black Country outfit ending in a little over a year, a cut-price summer move might be on the cards. And Barcelona might succeed in signing him for a fee lower than his market value of €40 million. Recent reports have claimed that Barcelona and Jorge Mendes have secured a verbal agreement for the Portuguese international.
But Xavi has reportedly been reluctant to bring Neves into his squad heading into the 2023/24 season. Meanwhile, the 26-year-old is prioritising joining Barcelona in the summer transfer window. And the two parties have now finalised an agreement over personal terms. In addition, the player is ready to wait for Barcelona to present a bid to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
