Aware that the arrivals of Dani Alves and Ferrán Torres are not enough for the fans of the Barcelona, the directors of the ‘Azulgrana’ team continue to work on the ‘renewal of their squad for next season. Faced with this, Joan Laporta, president of the institution, has focused on one of the pillars of the Bayern Munich as his team’s next big target.
Who is it about? As reported by different media in Spain and Germany, the player in question would be nothing more and nothing less than Niklas Sule. The 26-year-old defender ends his contract with the ‘Bavarians’ in July, so his signing is seen favorably at Barça. However, and as is customary at the Camp Nou, the operation will not be easy to tackle.
Tempted by several Premier clubs and by Bayern itself, which will try to renew him, the German footballer is one of the key pieces in Julian Nagelsmann’s eleven this season. But, as ‘Bild’ reports, from Spain they are very confident that Laporta can convince Süle to sign for the ‘Culé’, with defense being one of the main lines to reinforce.
With the renewal of Ronald Araújo in the air and with a Gerard Piqué in the last years of his career, the team led by Xavi Hernández will try to get a defender in the coming months, and what better than one that arrives at zero cost, like Dani Alves already did it at the time. This yes, before fichar to the German, the Barça will have to close the exits of Samuel Umtiti and Clement Lenglet.
In addition to Süle, at the Camp Nou they are considering other options in the event that the player decides to renew with Bayer Munich, the club he joined in 2017 from Hoffenheim. The Spanish César Azpilicueta or Andreas Christensen, for example, are other players that Laporta has his sights on, although the economic issue is still a predominant factor at Barça.
How much is Niklas Sule worth?
According to the transfer portal ‘Transfermarkt’, a site specialized in footballer appraisals, Niklas Süle is valued at 35 million euros. The Germany international has the ability to play as a central defender and right-back. A complete crack for the interests of Barcelona, who also has 14 goals and 8 assists throughout his career.
