Mendes reportedly promised to accompany his client to Barcelona, according to the Catalan publication.

However, the La Liga powerhouses have declined the opportunity to entice the midfield player from Benfica owing to the precarious financial position at the Nou Camp.

Neves, a 19-year-old who has excelled in Benfica’s No. 6 position, is one of the most sought-after play breakers in international football.
