Dani Olmo was on FC Barcelona's agenda last season before joining Leipzig. Now he is one of the most prominent players in the Bundesliga and is indisputable in Spain. The culés would have returned to reactivate that operation for summer

Dani Olmo was one of the signings that posed the FC Barcelona in the market of signings of winter of the 2020. The culés followed very closely the evolutions of the mediapunta in the Dinamo of Zagreb and, besides, remained loved with his performance with Spain Sub-21 in the European of 2019. By all this, the club saw in him a big incorporation, taking into account also that it formed in the Masia and knows the philosophy of the Barça.

Nevertheless, as the own footballer recognised months after signing by the Leipzig, the Barcelona did not go with everything to by him and at the end tired to expect them and went to the German group. "They spoke with my agents in November as if they wanted to do it very fast, but afterwards all went it postponing by a reason or by another. And like this until arriving at the end of January, that asked that it expected me when they saw that already it had it almost done with the Leipzig", affirmed in his day.

Now, a year and four months after engaging with the team germano, Elm has turned into a key piece in the diagrams of his trainer, Julian Naggelsman. This campaign has played 40 parties, the majority to title, has marked 5 goals and has delivered 11 assistances in total. His game has carried him to the absolute Spanish selection, where already is a fixed for Luis Enrique, that will carry him to the Eurocopa, where expects that it was even title.

While the mediapunta has evolved and has turned into one of the names to be followed in the Bundesliga, the Barça has not lost him of sight. In fact, in the newspaper 'Sport' go further and ensure that Joan Laporta and the technical office meditan launch to by him this summer. The one of Terrassa fits with the philosophy of the club, knows the house, is a value of present and future, and futbolísticamente would be a very useful incorporation and of a lot of level.

The problem with Elm, as with all the players that like right now, is the money. The Barcelona is crossing a deep economic crisis and will not be easy to do big signings for the course that comes. The arrival of the Catalan will depend especially of the 'operation gone out' and of how much money can collect. If it did box with Philippe Coutinho, Samuel Umtiti, Martin Braithwaite or even Ousmane Dembélé if it does not renew, his signing would be something easier.

The Leizpig will not facilitate the exit of Elm

Nevertheless, the Barça is not the only club that thinks in the ex of the Masia, since his performances have woken up the interest of other big. It spoke of the interest of the Real Madrid and of the Athletic, although it seems that white and rojiblancos already are to another thing. However, in the Leipzig rub the hands in front of what is for arriving, since they paid 22 millions by him in 2020 and his value right now is of almost 40. The Germans, that do not have economic problems, will sell expensive with total security.
