Wolves captain Rubén Neves said being linked to Barcelona is a “privilege” as any player in the world would love to join the Catalan giants.
Neves is reported to be Barça’s target after garnering attention with some outstanding performances for Wolverhampton and Portugal.
The midfielder has been a real eye-catcher since joining Molinho from Porto in 2017, helping the club win a promotion and establish himself in the Premier League.
Neves, who has a contract until 2024, expressed his pride that the Blaugrana could lure him to the Camp Nou.
He told the Portuguese broadcaster Canal 11: “Who wouldn’t want to try Barcelona? I think this is a common question for all players.
“This is one of the biggest clubs in the world. Of course, I am always honored to be associated with clubs of this caliber.”

However, the 25-year-old says he is focused on turning the Wolves’ fortunes around after a poor start to the season that saw the sacking of head coach Bruno Lage this month.
He added: “I’m going to do my job here and I’m sure people will work with me. I really trust these people in such situations.
“I have to focus on the wolves as much as possible. If you have a good time here, everything will come by itself.”
