The Marseille coach has taken it into his head to recruit a young Barça player.
Jorge Sampaoli is thinking big for the coming season. The Olympian coach wants to surround himself with the best players to carry out his mission and he does not hesitate to scrutinize the talents of the big European clubs. Thus, and according to a revelation made by The team, the Argentine technician would have views on a FC Barcelona winger.
Negotiations are already underway
The winger in question is called Konrad De La Fuente. He will be 20 next July and is considered a great hope for the Blaugrana team. Ronald Koeman only had him play two games last season, but for the past year he has been training regularly with the pros. Integrated into the Masia in 2013, this attacking midfielder is endowed with a good technique and would also be very fast. This element is of Haitian origin, but it is of American nationality.
Negotiations for a transfer have reportedly already started. Due to a limited budget, OM hopes to welcome this prodigy as part of a loan and with an option to purchase. A solution that does not suit Barcelona too much. The Catalans preferred a dry transfer to collect cash, while including a buyout clause in case De La Fuente were to explode in France. So there are obstacles to overcome, but talks remain ongoing.
