Bartomeu has identified Corentin Tolisso as a player who could be signed as a long-term replacement for Sergio Busquets in the heart of Barcelona’s midfield. The Frenchman joined Bayern Munich from Olympique Lyon in 2017 for 43 million euros but has failed to find his place in Germany and has opted to leave Bayern Munich to try his luck in another league in the upcoming season in hopes to revive his career.
According to the Don Balon, there are rumours that Tolisso’s agent has received multiple offers from Premier League teams such as Newcastle and Chelsea which the World Cup winner has rejected. The 25-year-old midfielder has hinted that he is interested to play in the Spanish League or return back to France where he first started his career.
The current La Liga leaders, must try to lure the young midfielder to the Camp Nou before other teams try to acquire the young midfielder. Signing Tolisso in the upcoming transfer window will give him adequate amount of time to learn under the guidance of one of the best defensive midfielders Sergio Busquets before he retires from football. The 25-year-old could also help in removing the pressure of Frenkie de Jong and Arthur Melo who are bound to be overused in the upcoming season as the club has decided to sell their experienced midfielders Arturo Vidal and Ivan Rakitic in the summer transfer window.
Barcelona is going to approach the summer transfer window on a tight budget and are fixated on signing a world-class defender along with their primary transfer targets Neymar and Lautaro Martinez. Hence, with the given circumstances the Spanish giants should try to negotiate a loan deal with Bayern Munich with a buyout clause for Tolisso.
