Report: Barcelona must sacrifice player with €50m market value in order to sign Nico Williams

Barcelona has identified Nico Williams as their top priority for the summer transfer window. The 21-year-old winger has impressed during Euro 2024 with Spain, making him a highly sought-after target for the Catalan club. However, Barcelona faces financial constraints and currently cannot afford to pay Williams’ €58 million release clause from Athletic Club, who are not willing to negotiate.

According to Cadena SER, Barcelona’s potential solution involves selling Raphinha to raise the necessary funds. The 27-year-old winger would likely lose his starting spot if Williams joined, making him a prime candidate for a sale. While Raphinha has a market value of €50 million, Barcelona would prefer to sell him for at least €70-80 million. Although Saudi Arabian clubs could meet this price, Raphinha prefers a return to the Premier League over a move to the Middle East.

The success of Barcelona’s pursuit of Nico Williams depends heavily on their ability to make a significant sale, such as that of Raphinha. The coming weeks will be crucial as Barcelona navigates the transfer market, trying to balance their financial limitations with their ambition to secure top talent.
