Neves will replace the Barca legend Sergio Busquetswho has announced that he will leave the club at the end of the season.

Xavi reportedly prefers Real Sociedad signing Martin Zubimendi or Fiorentina Sofian Amrabatbut due to ongoing financial problems, they cannot afford any of them.

Neves is a cheaper option and his salary will fit within the club’s salary cap as the club strives to balance the books, they said Sports.

Barcelona are now awaiting LaLiga’s all-clear after they succeeded a transfer ban imposed on them.

However, the Catalan giants are understood to have a plan to circumvent the issue and still sign players if league bosses agree.

A series of trades that Mendes proposes are being considered this summer Ansu Fati goes the other way and joins Wolves.

The Premier League club are reportedly ready to give Barca £30m plus Neves for the winger but that offer didn’t go through as Fati wants to stay at the club.

Neves sees his contract with Molinuex expire at the end of next season.


After arriving from Porto, he has been with Wolves since 2017 and has been a regular captain there.

The 26-year-old has also been linked with relocations Manchester United and Arsenal.

Meanwhile, the report also suggests that Franck Kessie and Sergino Dest are set to leave soon Barcelona and could also be used as part of a barter deal.
