EPL club interested in Barcelona defender

EPL club offers Barcelona a lifeline with potential bid for star defender

March 29, 2023 By Oscar Rojas
The Blaugrana side still has to balance their financial situation to make way for new signings, and this move could work like a charm for those purposes.

Barcelona's financial problems have been well documented over the years, but the club could find a way to earn some fresh cash out of a deal they did not see coming.

The Blaugrana club will be forced to sell players to meet UEFA's Financial Fair Play requirements and La Liga's financial measures, and one of those moves would see the Catalan team earning money for transferring a player they signed as a free agent. The team involved in this negotiation is none other than Newcastle, and the footballer who would leave the club is Andreas Christensen.

The Danish defender has played 25 games for Els Culers across all competitions, and with the team's need to part ways with some of their players, this could work out for Newcastle in terms of how much they will pay the Blaugrana team for his services. Reports coming in from Spain suggest that the club would be willing to let Christensen leave as they have already agreed terms with Athletic's Iñigo Martínez, who would join them on a free transfer this summer.

According to these reports, Barcelona execs had considered Ansu Fati and Andreas Christensen as options to leave the club, but Christensen's reputation has only increased his value since he arrived at Camp Nou, where he has earned a regular spot in Xavi's lineup. Added to it, Christensen's exit would give Barcelona $10M in salary cap space, which would also come in handy.

The player, who signed a contract with Barcelona until 2026, is reportedly ready to stay put at Camp Nou. Nevertheless, the center back is aware of the team's financial issues, and an exit cannot be thrown out of the table at this point.
