FC Barcelona have been following Swedish talent Lucas Bergvall for some time now. According to Sport, the Blaugranes have already agreed upon a deal with the player and his agent, but the Catalan giants haven't been able to move forward due to financial reasons.
The release clause set by Djurgårdens IF is around €15 million. The Swedish club rejected a previous offer of €5 million by Italian outfit Udinese. Barcelona has already signed the likes of Vitor Roque, who has costed the Catalan club a fortune.
Spending another €15 million on a 17-year-old will limit the clubs spending for the upcoming transfer window. Barcelona has been making big moves in the youth market. This is in line with the new Sporting Director, Deco's strategy.
Signing youth players who are still very young but display a lot of promise are way cheaper than signing big stars who have already entered their prime. Barcelona would love to have the teenager on board, but things aren't clear at the moment and anything can happen.
Barcelona's Profitable Prospect: Todibo's Premier League Allure
600 km away in Nice, ex-Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo continues to attract the interests of the Premier League. This is good news for Barcelona as Todibo's sale will mean a 20% gain from his transfer fees.
According to Telefoot, Chelsea is the most likely party to sign the French defender. Reports suggest that Nice and The Blues have already made a few talks regarding the transfer. The Frenchman has been on the top of Chelsea's priority list for a long time.
Other English clubs namely, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are also in the race for the defender's services. Jim Ratcliffe, the owner of Nice, is also among the shareholders of The Red Devils.
A Nice to Manchester journey can also be an easy one. As for Tottenham, they too have held a few talks with the player. Todibo might end up anywhere among these destinations and Barcelona will profit from the 24-year-old's sale.
