Óscar Mingueza signs with Celta Vigo, medical completed in the morning – Barcelona will have a buy back option.
Barça also keep 50% sell-on clause for future sale of Mingueza. Contract until June 2026, as per Fabrizio Romano.
As the new season draws near, FC Barcelona is under tremendous pressure to transfer their undesirable stars in an effort to make room for new signings.
Frenkie de Jong is one of the players rumored to be leaving Camp Nou. Although Xavi Hernandez, the midfielder’s coach, thinks highly of him, the club is having financial trouble as a result of the midfielder’s exorbitant salaries. It has compelled Barça to think about a summer sale.
De Jong has frequently turned down Manchester United’s offers, in part because there aren’t many opportunities to play in the Champions League. As a result, Barcelona hasn’t had much success getting the sale of de Jong approved.
The Athletic claims that Chelsea, whose manager Thomas Tuchel is a major fan of the player, has given Barcelona some last-minute optimism.
In reality, the German coach is pressuring Chelsea to sign the Dutchman, who has been suggested as a possible N’Golo Kante successor.
Given that his contract with the team expires at the end of the upcoming season, the Frenchman’s future there is questionable. Chelsea has been obliged to seek for other possibilities because there hasn’t been any development on a prospective contract extension.
One of these options may be Frenkie de Jong, who not only replaces Kante perfectly but also brings a lot of promise to the table and has a strong pedigree at the top level of football.
Barcelona, on the other hand, might be happy about the sale of the Dutchman. Although the Catalans just gained €100 million by using the third economic lever, his departure might go a long way in aiding the club in balancing the books and recruiting the new players.
