Joan Laporta and Jorgen Mendes dined this Wednesday at a restaurant in Barcelona. As confirmed by the Jijantes FC podcast, the president of FC Barcelona met with the Portuguese agent to discuss signings and renewals
The market of summer has begun officially for the FC Barcelona. The sale of 10% of the television rights of LaLiga by the next 25 years to the North American consortium Sixth Street allowed to unblock the signings of Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessié, enclosed operations from does months that had to expect up to now by the financial problems of the club. Once closed the two first reinforcements, Jorge Mendes wants to take advantage of to resolve the future of varied of his represented linked direct or indirectly with the actuality culé.
As it confirmed the podcast Jijantes FC, the Portuguese agent dined this Monday with the president blaugrana, a meeting that served to argue cases like the one of Francisco Trincãor, player that returned to the club after finalising his cession of a year to the Wolverhampton. The English group will have to credit 6 million euros to the Barça by the loan, which included an option of purchase no compulsory. In the meantime, especula with the return of the of Viana do Castelo to his country, possibly with the Sporting of Lisbon.
TrincãOr knows that it does not explain in the plans of Xavi Hernández and will not put obstacles to his exit, which would produce , again, in quality of loan, since his agreement in Barcelona finalises in June of 2025. Another name that surely went out to collation in the dinner between Laporta and Mendes is was the one of Nico González. The player of of 20 years prioritises to remain in the club, but if the technician egarense does not give him guarantees to be important for the first team could opt for leaving to the Olympique of Marseilles, club that already has asked after his case.
With agreement until June of 2024, the directive expects to renew him prompt. Of the contrary, no descartaría a traspaso by a mount near to the 25 million euros. Another midfield player whose future can define a lot of things in the summer is Frenkie of Jong. If the Dutch decides to leave to the Manchester United or to Chelsea, the Barça will do with around 80 'kilos' that it could reinvertir in a pair of reinforcements, between them Robert Lewandowski. However, the exit of Of Jong would be the perfect stage so that Mendes try to plant to one of his 'cracks' in Catalonia.
Mendes Wants to carry to Bernardo Silva to the Barça
In this sense, the agent luso would do the possible for planting to his compatriot Bernardo Silva to the orders of Xavi Hernández. According to English means, the player of the Manchester City already would have communicated to the managerial 'sky blue' his wish to leave , preferably, to the Barça, by which Jorge Mendes already has initiated the contacts for sondear the real possibilities of this operation. The main problem is that the City will ask a near figure to the 100 million euros and Laporta hardly will pay more than 50 'kilos by a player this summer.
In fact, that would be the maximum quantity that the Barça would be had to credit to the Bayern Munich by Lewandowski, main objective culé for this summer. Other names that could argue in the dinner of the Monday were the ones of Ángel Gave María and Rúben Neves. The Argentinian has almost done his signing by the Juventus, whereas the case of the player of the Wolverhampton is similar to the of Silva. If Frenkie goes out, the Barça will contemplate his arrival. Nevertheless, the economic subject also will be an obstacle to negotiate with the 'Wolves', since it is difficult that leave him go out by less than 50 million pounds.
