Liverpool has sent scouts to keep an eye on Porto’s history maker, youngest captain Ruben Neves, the 20 year old midfielder. Reportedly Klopp is an admirer of the player. However, Porto president claims he won’t go to LFC or anywhere, he will stay at Porto.
Porto club president Pinto da Costa said: “Ruben has a contract until 2019 and not until 2017, as sometimes I see in reports.” “And we would like to keep him at FC Porto, as a kind of Joao Pinto. That is, he was a symbol and legend of the progress of the club for several generations.” “I never want him to leave Porto. Since I want him to stay for a long time he can be Porto’s greatest captain.”
The reliable journo Ed Malyon wrote on October 21st that “Liverpool were in Portugal to scout Ruben Neves again last night. Think there’s confidence LFC end this could happen”. A bola magazine also reported LFC are scouting Neves.
