Barcelona desperate to obtain Olmo in the near future

Dani

According to reports, Barcelona approached Dani Olmo with a proposal to let his contract with RB Leipzig run down. Thus, allowing him to join the Catalan club for free in 2024.

Dani Olmo, who is currently playing for RB Leipzig, has caught the attention of Barcelona as they plan to sign him for free in 2024. The Spanish winger’s contract with Leipzig expires in just over a year, and the Catalan giants are unable to afford the transfer fee this summer due to their financial situation. Therefore, they are willing to wait for the 24-year-old to become a free agent before bringing him to La Liga.

What does the report say about Olmo’s possible arrival to Barcelona?

One Mundo Deportivo report says, Barcelona expresses interest in the attacker. Previously, ex-coach Julian Nagelsmann of Bayern hailed him as extraordinary.

The report claims:

“Barcelona knew that Dani Olmo was negotiating his renewal with Red Bull Leipzig. So they organized an informal meeting between members of the Barça staff, including Xavi Hernández himself. Also, people very close to the footballer at the home of a Spanish player in Doha.”

“They were interested in Dani’s situation, they showed him their willingness to be able to sign him. They praised his great role in the World Cup. But they also explained to him the difficult financial situation that the Catalan team is going through.”

“They opened the door for him to return to Barca, but with one request: that he not renew in Germany because they would go for him if he was released in 2024, when he ends with Leipzig.”

If he joins the team in 2024, the composition of the team is likely to have undergone significant changes from its current setup.

The Catalan club may not necessarily require a new wide attacker at the moment. But if they were to offload some players, acquiring Olmo on a free transfer in 2024 could prove to be a shrewd move. The versatile Spain international, usually operates on the left wing. He could feature in a number of different roles, such as a false nine or even playing alongside Ousmane Dembele or Raphinha as a wide attacker.
