Rúben Neves Could not being of the like total of Xavi Hernández. The egarense prefers to keep to Sergio Busquets in the staff by at least a season more before thinking in a spare
In front of the possible exit of Sergio Busquets of the FC Barcelona in the summer of 2023, the Barcelona team has to look for a spare for the centre of the field. Following the mechanisms established by the directive, the options in the free agency that can arrive to cost zero would have priority, except that produce some important sale of some effective current to face up to the payment of a traspaso in the window of passes.
Although the name of Rúben Neves has sounded like one of the possible candidates to replace him, the profile of the Portuguese would not have finished to convince to the egarense. The priority by the moment would be to procure arrive to an agreement with Busquets to prolong his bond with the Catalan entity by at least a season more, since the captain would be the only that would offer the necessary guarantees in his diagram of game.
The today player of the Wolverhampton had outlined like one of the main options like spare of 'Busi', but Xavi would follow housing some doubts. Perhaps it was more than his like Martín Zubimendi, but the Basque already has remained practically descartado after having arrived to an agreement with the Real Sociedad to continue defending the colours of the team directed by Imanol Bailiff.
How much would cost the operation?
But Rúben Neves neither would arrive without cost, since his agreement with the English team will be in force until 30 June 2024 and will not be until January of this year that can find in freedom to initiate negotiations with other clubs, as long as previously it have not produced a renewal or some traspaso to another team. His cost round the 40 million euros, a quantity that the Barça could pay as long as there is some important sale.
His cost would be similar to the of Zubimendi, but in the case of the footballer of the Real the option luce more complicated, taking into account that the club to the that belongs could be a so much more demanding with the quantities involved in the operation. Besides, the Basque has showed happy in the sportive project of Bailiff, by what would not have plans to change of airs in an immediate future. The Barça, for the moment, will have to evaluate the options of the market or try convince to Busquets.
