Barcelona star will join Real Betis. Alex Collado, a midfielder for Barcelona, is preparing to go to Real Betis, where he might cover Sergio Canales’ upcoming void. The 24-year-old midfielder, who will depart Camp Nou this summer, is reportedly planning to revitalize his career.
Canales’ five-year tenure with Betis is coming to an end as his feet are already moving towards the exit. The Spanish international is reportedly close to joining Monterrey, the Mexican team that has been pursuing him closely in recent weeks, according to Sport (via Football Espana).
These whispers have been turned almost into truths by the report, which confirms a forthcoming agreement between the parties. This week, there were rumors that Monterrey was preparing a €20 million offer, which Betis appears to have accepted.
The loss of Canales will cause problems, but Betis has already thought of a substitute, and the next step is to recruit Alex Collado. The young Catalan’s future at Barcelona appears to be somewhat hazy, therefore it’s possible that his contract will expire early and he’ll move to Seville.
Despite Collado’s impending departure, Barca will still be interested in his progress. Barcelona is likely to obtain a 30% sell-on clause as part of the planned agreement. With this configuration, Collado will undoubtedly want to give Betis his best effort in order to give his career a boost.
The 24-year-old midfielder played just 15 times in La Liga while on loan with Elche last season before being sent back to Barcelona, where it was decided he was no longer needed.
Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong for Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva in potential swap deal:
According to reports, Barcelona plans to present Manchester City with an intriguing player swap proposal. Apparently, the Bluagrana are prepared to use Frenkie de Jong as a negotiating tool in their pursuit of Bernardo Silva, according to FootballTransfers (via SportsMole).
It’s no secret that the Spanish are frantically trying to sign Silva this summer, and the team is demonstrating a strong desire to do so. They must contend with a number of Saudi Arabian clubs, all of which are fighting for the services of the Portuguese midfielder.
Barcelona’s perilous financial status prevents them from making any high-profile cash transfers in the transfer market, despite the acute need for new players. Ilkay Gundogan and Inigo Martinez have both joined the team so far, however, both players were given free transfers.
De Jong, on the other hand, has demonstrated a solid dedication to remaining with Barcelona, replicating his position from the previous summer, when he turned down interest from Manchester United. Manchester City, fresh off their treble-winning season, exudes the confidence necessary to maybe make the Dutchman change his mind. After all, they are currently without a doubt the best club team in Europe.
The Dutch international played an important role for Barcelona last season, making 43 games in various tournaments to highlight his significance. He managed to score twice and contributed four assists, making him a valuable member of the team.
