Barcelona are reportedly set to secure the signing of Wolves captain Ruben Neves ‘in the coming days’.
Xavi is eager to make additions to his squad and Neves has been heavily linked with a departure from Molineux.
According to AS, an agreement has been reached between all parties over a transfer and a deal could happen for £26million.
The report states that Xavi has some reservations about the 26-year-old, with the deal having been orchestrated by Barcelona president Joan Laporta and Neves’ agent Jorge Mendes.
It is anticipated that if Neves joins then it will lead to fellow midfielder Franck Kessie leaving Barcelona after just one season at the club.
