The interest of Barça by Dani Olmo (23 years) remains despite the names that have come to the fore to reinforce the attack. Since the Barça club tried to sign the Spanish international in the summer, contact between both parties has been maintained and, as SER Catalunya pointed out, a meeting is scheduled to continue analyzing the operation. The meeting is scheduled for the end of the week and will analyze what possibilities exist to remove the attacker from the Red Bull Leipzig either in winter or in summer. In fact, your agent Juanma Lopez has been talking to Mateu alemany and they even saw each other in Madrid when Barça played against Rayo.
In that meeting, the Barça club insisted that the interest in signing Elm it was firm, as long as it adjusted to the economic reality of the entity. As in summer, with Dani there will be no problems to agree, but the player’s part has already informed the Barça to get it out of Leipzig in the winter market it will be almost impossible, as already explained by MD. If in the summer the Germans asked for 75 million, now they are not about to let him go for much less. More than anything because they want to keep Dani until the summer because the team needs him in Europe – if they confirm their qualification for the Europa League – and to get into the next edition of the Champions, an objective as priority as it is vital for them. As of June, it will be something else and there will be more predisposition on the German side.
Against the complexity of the operation this winter, from the Barça It has also been tried to prioritize other options without neglecting that of Dani Olmo. In fact, a meeting was scheduled last Thursday that was postponed because Mateu alemany I had stayed with him Manchester City to be able to probe the incorporation of Ferran torres, a footballer that Barça has followed for a long time and who also likes a lot Xavi. Although they are similar profiles, Barça studies them as parallel options but they could become complementary. Obviously, the economic question will mark where the limit is.

But that is a value to take into account, I think it is clear, “he said.
