The Catalan media has largely accepted Barcelona’s overall plan for a low-cost transfer window in recent months, but there’s always the temptation to make wild statements about what might happen if the club is able to secure sales this summer.
Know who those two players are:
That’s a reference to significant sales, with Mundo Deportivo claiming that the departure of a high-priced player like Antoine Griezmann or Ousmane Dembele would free up funds for the Blaugrana to spend on the market.
Two players have been given the ‘go-ahead for immediate signing’ by the technical staff.
Jules Kounde and Matthijs de Ligt are their names.
While technical approval validates Barcelona’s desire to sign either player, it does not ensure they will be able to do so. Of course, financing a transfer fee is the next stage, and Mundo reports that Sevilla would demand €65-70 million for Kounde.
