Euro 2024 star obsessed with joining Barcelona

Catalan newspaper Sport said that one of the most prominent players in the Euro 2024 tournament currently being held in Germany is obsessed with the idea of ​​joining Barcelona next season.

Barcelona are preparing to strengthen their ranks and have started with the bench, as German coach Hansi Flick was appointed after Xavi Hernandez was dismissed from his position at the end of last season.

Hansi Flick is looking to strengthen some positions in the Catalan team, most notably the left wing position, and the most prominent candidate for it is the Spanish winger Nico Williams, a 21-year-old Athletic Bilbao player.

According to Sport, Nico Williams has become Barcelona’s main target in the current summer transfer window, but there is a strong competitor who has entered the line, which is the English club Chelsea.

Nico Williams has a release clause of €60m, which is a reasonable amount for a rich club like Chelsea, who already made an offer for the player but received an immediate response: “I just want to play for Barcelona.”

Sport newspaper confirms that Chelsea did not give up and is armed with the great financial ability to tempt the player to change his mind, as it can offer a salary ranging between 15 and 20 million, which is a huge amount that Barcelona will not be able to match.

For his part, Barcelona is believed to be armed with the desire of Nico Williams, who is shining remarkably in the Euros with the Spanish national team, as he has become obsessed with the idea of ​​wearing the Catalan club’s shirt.

Another factor that Barcelona is counting on is the excellent relationship between Nico Williams and Barcelona players in the Spanish national team, Pedri and Lamine Yamal, and that they were able to convince the player to join them at the Blaugrana.
