Alex Collado and Rey Manaj might leave Barcelona before the summer transfer window concludes as the recently promoted duo have attracted multiple offers.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the former Barca B players’ futures is likely to be decided after Barcelona’s home fixture against Getafe.
Manaj, currently 24, has attracted approaches from Spanish sides Mallorca and Rayo Vallecano. SC Freiburg from Bundesliga are also interested in the Albanian striker. Barcelona are expecting to get 3 million euros for Manaj, and it’s upon Ronald Koeman to make a decision. It is understood that the Dutch manager wants to keep Manaj with the limited attacking options he has.
Manaj scored four – most amongst the Barcelona players – in this year’s pre-season games.
In other news, Alex Collado, after canceling a last-minute loan deal to Belgium, has another loan deal at his disposal. Championship side Sheffield United are interested to acquire the youngster in a season-long deal. Furthermore, the English side are willing to pay Collado’s salary over the period.
Collado might consider accepting the loan deal, especially after Ronald Koeman’s indication in the pre-match press conference. Koeman made it clear that the Spaniard will not be getting many opportunities in the upcoming days.
