Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona is very pending of several players that are in the diary of face to the season that comes. Xavi Hernández has asked reinforcements so that the team can 'compete' to the maximum level and do not repeat the 'disappointment' of this year. One of the names that interest to the Catalans is Nico Williams, one of the most promising extremes of the Spanish football and one of the stars of the Athletic.

The situation with the footballer is complicated, because it finish to renew with the picture bilbaíno until the summer of 2027 with a clause of rescission that is between the 50 and 60 million euros; a figure that, to day of today, is inaccessible for the Barcelona. Still his signing is not descartado and according to an information of 'SPORT' the intention is to insist in his incorporation as long as they fulfil the conditions with the Fair Play financial.

The Barça is slope to resolve his economic situation to be able to 'think' in signings. It is not an ideal stage, place are many the problems that it is necessary to solve (Barça Vision, the sales, the agreement with Nike...), but the sportive direction keeps the option of Nico Williams on the table, if they give the conditions. It would be the second 'priority' for this summer, after the traspaso of a mediocentro defensive so that it lead the room of machines from the 2023/2024.

The two key points of the 'case Williams' in the Barça

Of agreement to this information, is the big 'chosen' for the forward and the operation would be "worked" waiting for that solve the problems with the limit salarial. There are two key points in this operation: The posture of the Catalans, that wants to have a reinforcement 'powerful' for the left extreme and there is concenso absolute in the sportive direction by his age, the disequilibrium that generates by the band and the price, that would not consider exaggerated in spite of the last informations of 'Sportive World'.

Another point that goes in at stake is the supposed posture of the player of 21 years. SPORT Indicates that the wish to join ways is "mutual", that is to say, the attacker wants to get dressed of Barcelona for the next season. Although it finish to renew does few months, the option to play the Champions League calls him a lot the attention. It will not have the opportunity to do it with the Athletic Club and in the Barça himself would exist this option, besides, being important for Xavi Hernández. The aim is that it can close before the Eurocopa, if it exists options.
