Report: Barcelona will sell Leeds target Oscar Mingueza for £4.2m
Barcelona will sell Oscar Mingueza for as little as £4.2 million, according to a report from Mundo Deportivo, in news that may certainly alert Leeds director of football Victor Orta.
Mingueza looks set to leave the Nou Camp this summer. His contract with the Catalan giants expires at the end of next season. And Mundo Deportivo reports that there are no plans to discuss a new deal.
Barcelona want to sell the 23-year-old. And the likes of Hertha Berlin and Bordeaux are keen.
But recent reports suggested that Leeds are also incredibly interested in Mingueza. In fact, it was claimed that the Whites had already asked about his availability ahead of the summer.
It seems that he will be available. And he will not cost a lot. Mundo Deportivo reports that he could be available for as little as £4.2 million.
Barcelona will sell Oscar Mingueza for £4.2m
Leeds and Barcelona look set to get around the negotiating table this summer. It is looking likely that Raphinha will attract a bid from Xavi’s men in the near future.
Leeds’ interest in Mingueza may help when the two clubs open talks over Raphinha. But much may depend on whether the Whites stay up.
It is hard to imagine him having any interest in signing for Leeds if they fall into the Championship.
If they stay up meanwhile, the fans may have their concerns about signing Mingueza. They have not had the best experiences signing players from Spain’s biggest clubs. Neither Kiko Casilla or Junior Firpo have had the best spells.
But the reported asking price would make a move for Mingueza a much smaller gamble. So maybe Leeds will indeed keep the youngster on their radar as the window looms.
