Transfer Rumors and News

Barcelona €60 million-rated winger target on Bayern Munich’s radar

It appears that Barcelona and Bayern Munich could be at loggerheads over multiple players heading into the summer transfer window.

The Blaugrana are already trying to sign Joshua Kimmich from the Bavarian giants, while the Bundesliga club are looking at Ronald Araujo and Frenkie de Jong as possible options.

Furthermore, both clubs also appear to have shared interest in a number of targets.

Indeed, as has already been reported, Bayern Munich are set to rival Barça for Dani Olmo, while PSG sensation Xavi Simons is also a mutual target for both clubs.

Now, another name appears to have entered the list of players wanted by both Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Nico Williams a target for Bayern

Indeed, as per journalist Jonathan Ramos, Bayern Munich have entered the race for Barcelona target and Athletic Club winger Nico Williams heading into the summer.

In fact, the Bavarian giants plan on following the 21-year-old winger closely during the UEFA Euro 2024, which will be played in Germany, where the forward is expected to play a key role for Spain.

Williams, who renewed his contract with Athletic Club towards the end of 2023, has a release clause that is close to the €60 million mark.

Barcelona are not in a position to meet it and are thus considering selling a player, possibly Raphinha, to raise the required funds.

However, Bayern Munich have no such restrictions and find the €60 million clause acceptable for the winger.

But, Nico himself might not see a move to Germany in favourable light at this point in his career because of the distance, language, and competition.

It must be noted that Xavi had been one of the biggest advocates behind Barcelona’s interest in Nico. With him no longer in charge, whether new manager Hansi Flick would be willing to pursue the Spaniard with the same rigour remains to be seen.
