Barcelona to sign €20m player as De Jong’s replacement

Barcelona, Six Sports

Barcelona are currently tangled in negotiations with Manchester United for a Frenkie de Jong move to Old Trafford. Once the deal goes through, Barcelona can use the money to strengthen the team. One such name for the Spanish club is Carlos Soler of Valencia.

However, Soler is not the first choice for Barcelona. Bernardo Silva is Barcelona’s number one midfield target. According to multiple reports, Bernardo is keen on joining La Liga, but he still has a contract with City. Also, City have no intentions of selling their star midfielder. This might mean that they could ask for an extremely high price for the player from the Catalans.

Barcelona are looking to make a move worth €20 million to sign Carlos Soler from Valencia

The next best fit for Barcelona is Carlos Soler. He is an interior midfielder. He is an extremely competitive and dedicated footballer. Moreover, he is not very expensive. This deal could help Barcelona immensely.

Contact between Barcelona and Soler had started a long time ago. Barcelona had decided to listen to offers for midfielders as a replacement for de Jong. And Soler was one such player who had caught their eye.

His strong performances for the Spanish national team have attracted the attention of many top clubs. Atletico Madrid is in the pole position to sign the player, while Juventus are also interested in him.

Lewandowski, the number one priority for the Catalans

Barcelona have their eyes set on bringing Lewandowski to Camp Nou. Lewandowski is Barcelona’s priority number one in this transfer window. They have made an offer worth €40m to Bayern Munich for the striker. However, Bayern have rejected this offer stating that the striker is worth at least €60m.

Robert Lewandowski is, by all accounts Barcelona’s number one target. However, a few extra options for the midfield will always come in handy. Moreover, signing Soler will be a step in the right direction to fill the void created by the departure of de Jong
