Manchester United, Liverpool and Newcastle are in a ‘scramble’ for Rubén Neves

Man­ches­ter Unit­ed, Liv­er­pool and New­cas­tle are all in an ‘all-out effort’ to sign Rubén Neves this summer.

Wolver­hamp­ton Wan­der­ers’ Por­tuguese mid­field­er, 25, has been linked with Barcelona in recent months.

How­ev­er, a new report has now emerged that the La Liga giants have with­drawn from the trans­fer race.

That’s why Pre­mier League clubs Unit­ed, Liv­er­pool and New­cas­tle are inter­est­ed in sign­ing him.

Span­ish pub­lish­er Sport reports that Neves’ agent, Jorge Mendes, met with Barcelona offi­cials last week.

How­ev­er, Xabi was told dur­ing the nego­ti­a­tions that it was pri­or­i­tiz­ing the rein­force­ment of oth­er positions.

We also want to secure the future of vet­er­an Ser­gio Bus­quets, whose con­tract has expired.

And even if it does­n’t work out, Xavi “prefers a dif­fer­ent type of mid­field­er’s pro­file” to Neves, the mag­a­zine claims.

The ace, who arrived at Molineux from Por­to in 2017, has helped estab­lish him­self in the Pre­mier League after win­ning the cham­pi­onship in his first season.

He is now less than a year and a half away from his con­tract, and rather than risk los­ing him need­less­ly in 2024, the Tim­ber­wolves are appar­ent­ly plan­ning to sell him this summer.

Unit­ed man­ag­er Eric ten Hag has long been rumored to have admired the play­er, along with Kop boss Jür­gen Klopp.

But New­cas­tle are the lat­est team to enter the race for Neves.
