About Football Express India - Indian Super League - I-League

Barcelona has gone for the kill today coming up with a new bid involving both money and a player. To force Manchester United to swap a young midfielder they once regarded as being priceless. As claimed in the latest news Barcelona feels that this mouth-watering offer may well be the decisive factor that will make the deal go through.

The financial situation of Barcelona is far from desirable. Such complexities have forced the club to engage in other aspects in the transfer market to innovate when acquiring players.

Currently most of their new players are obtained either on loan or as free agents. Currently, Barcelona is going even further in cutting down the transfer expenses by using players as bargaining chips. This act by Barcelona is new in the market displacing many of the traditional features of the market for transfer.

Barcelona have offered a surprise swap deal offer for young midfielder of Manchester United Kobbie Mainoo. Which includes Barcelona winger Raphinha. Former Leeds United winger has been included in the swap deal by Catalonian club.

This means that instead of clubs relying mainly on their financial might to get the best players. Or to retain their successfully contracted player. They are now having to look for other strategies by which they can enhance their squads.

Barcelona’s latest deal arrangements could serve a base for other transfers in the future where worth of players would be essential in bargaining. Also, they stand a chance of experiencing certain consequences in Manchester United.

If they take the offer of Barcelona, listeners could mean a willingness to bargain and alter to the existing market. It would also be as a means of proving that regardless of the talent. Possessing value which can be exchanged for dollars is possible given the right offer.

Barcelona wants young midfielder from Manchester

Reports coming from Spain indicate that Barcelona is in a bid to complete a big transfer coup with Manchester United through Raphinha. The incoming manager of the Barcelona football team has requested from the club president, Joan Laporta, to pursue Kobbie Mainoo.

Mainoo had a good season at Old Trafford with good last match in the FA Cup final match against Manchester City. Flick believes that Mainoo is an immediately usable talent even though he is young, and lacks experience in the team.

Anyway, after attempting to sign Mainoo. Barcelona is to think about other similar players such as Martín Zubimendi, Amadou Onana, Mikel Merino, or Joshua Kimmich. However, the necessary formation of such a surprise move appears extremely problematic because Manchester United does not want to sell.

Manchester United aren’t selling Kobbie Mainoo

Mainoo – alongside young stars Alejandro Garnacho and Rasmus Hojlund. They are players which are now labelled by United as players they didn’t want to sell. Barcelona still want to ask the question and the offer they’ll put to Man Utd is Raphinha plus €10m/£8.5m for Mainoo.

Chances are that the offer will fail, and rarely the offer will be successful. Sir Jim Ratcliffe is targeting youths, players in their teenage and young adulthood. The new co-owner is someone who likes players with Premier League experience and that is why Raphinha was signed.

However, at 27 Raphinha does not meet Ratcliffe’s ideal age of players he wants in the team. Moreover, there is no signal of Mainoo in planning to transfer, there is also no signal that Manchester United wants the player. Also, Mainoo is currently in talks with Manchester United team over a new contract with his current wage that can be tripled.

Also, there is no way Manchester United is selling Kobbie Mainoo this time. As he was the best player of Manchester United this season.
