The transfer deadline is around the corner and once again, we bring you all the latest live deals, news and underground doings from FC Barcelona.
Barca Secure Emre Demir from Kayserispor
We earlier reported that the Catalans were tracking the Turkish youngster. The latest report is that Barca has signed the 17yrs old player from Turkish football side, Kayserispor. According to reports, Barca will pay €4m for the young midfielder. It was also decided that Emre Demir will be loaned back to his current club to continue his personal development.
Barca and RB Leipzig Reach Agreement on Ilaix Moriba Transfer
Ilaix may be on his way to Germany after ESPN reported that RB Leipzig has reached an agreement with Barca for the signing of the youngster. The deal is said to be worth €20m and will be five years. With this news, Ilaix Moriba is expected to leave for Germany to complete a medical before putting pen to paper to finalize the deal.
This will come as a big blow to both Chelsea and Tottenham who expressed serious interest to bring the Guinean player to London.
Emerson Royal Nearing Camp Nou Exit
It is looking more likely that the Brazilian full back may not get to enjoy his stay at Barca as there are reports linking him to Tottenham Hotspur. It is no longer news that Spurs tried to snap up Ilaix Moriba, but the deal seems to have fell through and the London based side is now confident of landing the former Real Betis man instead.
According to Fabrizio Romano, an agreement is in place between player and club and that Tottenham will pay up to €30million (£25.7m) for Emerson’s signature. Koeman earlier suggested that Sergino Dest and Oscar Mingueza are enough for the right back position. Emerson has already debuted in La Liga and started the last game against Getafe at the Camp Nou.
Revealed: Barca Turned Down Opportunity to Sign C. Ronaldo from Juventus after Messi Exit
A popular Spanish radio station, Cat Radio has stated that former Real Madrid legend, Cristiano Ronaldo was offered to Barca after the sudden fallout with the Old Lady. However, Barca didn’t jump on the deal but simply passed probably due to financial constraints.
Although it seemed like Manchester City were on the verge of signing the Portuguese superstar, it was their rivals Manchester United that swooped in at the last minute to bring their former star player back to the Old Trafford.
Alex Collado and Riqui Puig
Both players are not in Koeman’s good books and Collado has been specifically told to find a new club or risk being frozen out. It is believed Collado doesn’t want a purchase clause inserted in his loan contract. However, there are strong suggestions that Riqui Puig may not be leaving this summer as earlier touted.
