Barça Mercato: Still in negotiations for the sale of Frankie de Jongthe Blaugranas have reached an agreement for the arrival of a Portuguese jewel.
Barça Mercato: FC Barcelona is aiming for a big blow in the midfield
FC Barcelona have regained ambition since the appointment of Xavi as coach last December. Stuck in the soft underbelly of the championship, the Blaugranas managed a spectacular comeback to finally climb to second place in the standings. This season, the club will therefore be at the rendezvous of the Champions League again. A competition that allows the FC Barcelona to be ambitious in the transfer market.
The Catalans want to sign one of the best players in the world, Bernardo Silva. The Portuguese midfielder was one of the protagonists of Manchester City’s success last year. His performance and his splendid goal in the semi-final first leg of the Champions League are remembered. The Cityzens claim 93 million euros to cede their Portuguese jewel. A sum deemed too high by the leaders of Barça who are willing to offer 50 million euros to Skyblues. Nevertheless, the Catalans have an advantage. According Sport, Bernardo Silva has agreed to join FC Barcelona. A position that will allow the Blaugranas to put pressure on Man City to lower the price of the transaction.
Barça Mercato: The Blaugrans’ files are not progressing
For several weeks, the two priority issues of FC Barcelona have been at a standstill. Frenkie de Jong is considering his future and Bayern are firm on Robert Lewandowski. Manchester United and Barça have agreed on a transfer of 85 million euros for Frankie de Jong.
The Dutch international does not want to join England and his decision blocks the deal between the two clubs. Robert Lewandowski has a contractual agreement with Barça, while Bayern Munich are proving intractable by demanding more than 50 million euros. A problematic situation for Xavi who wants to work with a complete group.
