- The winger’s agent had dinner on July 19, in Miami, with Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff in case the Marcos Alonso plan fails. The purchase and the cession are shuffled.
After the signing of Kounde, Barcelona works to shore up the defense. Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso are the priorities. Even with both players having already reached an agreement. However, after Barcelona ‘snatched’ Raphinha and Kounde from Chelsea, at Stamford Bridge they closed the exit door to the two Barca goals. For this reason, Barcelona has begun to activate Plan B: Reguilon.
On July 19, Kia Joorabchian, one of the Tottenham winger’s agents, had dinner in Miami with Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff. The Barca club knew first-hand that the defender would be delighted to stop at the Camp Nou, while in that match Alemany sent the player interest in signing him if the efforts to incorporate Marcos Alonso did not bear fruit.
In the conversations, three possibilities were discussed: the transfer, the assignment, or the loan with a purchase option. Tottenham has valued the winger at around 25 million euros, but as the market progresses and taking into account that Matt Doherty, Ryan Sessegnon, and Ivan Perisic already have Matt Doherty, Ryan Sessegnon, and Ivan Perisic on the left wing, that figure will be lowered.
The English press reports this Thursday that Tottenham would even be willing to accept a barter with Memphis Depay. However, as KG has learned, the Dutch striker is ruled out by the London club’s sports management.
It should be remembered that Real Madrid has a repurchase option on Reguilon for 40 million euros until August 31.
Barca’s offer is not the only one that the side has on the table, which, among others, Sevilla also wants, which he played on loan for the 19-20 campaign before being transferred to Tottenham by Real Madrid in exchange for €30 million.
