Rubén Neves has turned down bids from Manchester United and Liverpool and is awaiting a 'dream' move to Barcelona

Rubén Neves has turned down bids from Man­ches­ter Unit­ed and Liv­er­pool and is await­ing a ‘dream’ move to Barcelona.

The 25-year-old Por­tuguese mid­field­er was linked with a move to Wolves after last season.

How­ev­er, Bruno Laghe’s team defend­ed the play­er despite a lot of interest.

Sport reports that Man­ches­ter Unit­ed and Liv­er­pool were two clubs that were con­sid­er­ing neves.

Both were look­ing for mid­field options over the summer.

Eric ten Hag has been look­ing for a replace­ment for the depar­tures of Paul Pog­ba and Neman­ja Mat­ic, and Jür­gen Klopp has start­ed look­ing towards the end of the win­dow, plagued by injury con­cerns and a setback.

How­ev­er, Neves is report­ed­ly unwill­ing to nego­ti­ate with either club.

Because he knew Barcelona were inter­est­ed in him.

Neves is will­ing to wait until 2023, although he can­not sign in the sum­mer giv­en the Cata­lan club’s finan­cial situation.

Barça see the Por­tuguese as a ‘dream’ play­er to replace Ser­gio Bus­quets, who will move to Inter Mia­mi at the end of the season.

Neves joined Wolves from Por­to in 2017 for a then-record €18million move for a sec­ond-tier club.

From his first year he played every game and helped the Mid­lands team to promotion.

And in his four years in the Pre­mier League, he was successful.

Since join­ing the Wolves, he has scored 25 goals and pro­vid­ed 12 assists in 220 appearances.
