Barcelona drop out of race for €60m Man United target who prefers to play in the premier league



Barcelona drop out of race for €60m Man United target who prefers to play in the premier league

Manchester United target Dani Olmo is keen to move back to Barcelona but the Catalan giants cannot afford him this summer.

United have had major problems all over the pitch but the lack of creativity in the team is clear for all to see. 52 goals scored in 35 league games tells its own story and the club has been the victim of poor wing play all season long.

Antony has slightly improved lately but he is still playing well below the level of that expected at a club like Manchester United. In addition, Marcus Rashford has endured the most disappointing season of his career, on and off the pitch.

Therefore, United have been linked to numerous players to try and rejig their ailing creative department as, once again, Bruno Fernandes has been expected to carry most of the heavy lifting.

United’s torturer on Monday night, Michael Olise, is seen as the most likely creative player INEOS will make a move for, but they have also been linked to Red Bull Leipzig’s Dani Olmo.

In fact, it had been previously reported that the Spaniard was very open to moving to England and, in particular Manchester – a huge boost to either United or City.

It was reported that Olmo “likes Manchester and the English lifestyle”, which could make any move for the 26 year old that bit easier.

Due to the attacking midfielder’s openness to a move, it has been suggested that United have already begun talks with the player to iron out a summer deal.

The outlet claims that “Olmo feels very grateful to the Blaugrana club. He spent seven years in the Barça youth ranks until, as a youth player, he took the risk of going to Croatian football.”

In addition, a return to the Camp Nou “would always be a priority option for the footballer.”

However, despite how “delighted with his incorporation” Barca coach Xavi would be, “it seems almost impossible in the current context.”

“The will of the footballer is not enough. Dani Olmo has a clause of €60 million, affordable for a European great, but not for FC Barcelona with its economy so decimated.”
