Barcelona are now filled with money to splash on their transfer targets following the world record sale of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain only last week.
“I talked to him about the possibility [that he would join PSG]”, said Alves.
Valverde’s side comfortably defeated Chapecoense 5-0 on Monday, and after Neymar’s world-record move to Paris Saint-Germain, moves to supplement the void are possible.
Sanchez’s future is still shrouded in uncertainty.
However, the Brazil global went on to swap Juve for PSG this summer and he says that the Turin-based club did not fully allow him to play his natural game.
According to reports, Barcelona may use the money that they gained from the sale of Neymar to buy Dele Alli from Tottenham.
Despite the switch finally going ahead, however, problems have continued to plague the protracted transfer with PSG, Barcelona and Neymar’s representatives all at loggerheads over various parts of the deal.
Mbappé has a contract with Nike that would seem to facilitate a move to a “Category A” big club, specifically meaning one of PSG, Manchester City, Barcelona or Chelsea. “With this criteria not met, the club will not pay the renewal bonus”.
“Since I arrived in Europe, the club has always been one of the most competitive and most ambitious”.
And with Barca ready to spend their huge wad of cash, they could also conclude deals for Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele and Real Sociedad’s Inigo Martinez.
Neymar is now expected to make his debut on August 13 against Guingamp.
“The players and the dimension of the club are totally different now and it’s good for the club”, 30-year-old supporter David Tang said outside the stadium. “It’s a very important decision, it’s the highest release clause paid in the history”.
