Barça’s Transfer Strategy and the High Stakes on Todibo’s Potential Move to Manchester United

Barça is very aware of the future of two players on the market whose economic rights they share. The sale of these players can be the definitive lever for the Blaugrana club to have salary margin during this month of January and use it in the event that the coaching staff needs reinforcements. Miranda, from Betis, can go to Milan for around 4 million (Barça would keep half), but the jackpot is in Jean-Clair Todibo whose departure to Manchester United is being managed. Barça could earn around 12 million euros if a sale of 60 million by Nice finally takes place.

The Todibo operation, without a doubt, has been one of the most economically successful in recent years. The French central defender signed from Toulouse for one million euros. It was a bet by former technical secretary, Ramón Planes, in an operation in which he also asked about midfielder Sangaré although he ultimately did not sign. Todibo never established himself at Barça despite his quality and ended up on loan at both Schalke and Benfica, where he also had no marked consistency despite the fact that in the Bundelsiga he already showed signs of his effectiveness as a central defender.

Nice ended up betting on him and signed him for 7 million euros plus variables, some of which have already been collected, leaving benefits to the Blaugrana club of close to 10 million euros. And there may be more. Because Barça saved twenty percent of its rights in a future sale and everything indicates that Nice is going to make a real splash with its transfer now or in the summer. The French club wanted to keep him until June, but pressure from Premier teams could advance the operation.

Manchester United, according to ‘Sky’, have already decided to go after the Frenchman to alleviate their defensive disaster. The English team has conceded 17 goals in 14 games in the Premier and 14 goals in five games in the Champions League. Their coach, Erik Ten Hag, is clear that the big hole is behind and he does not trust the majority of his centre-backs. He has asked for an effort if they manage to place some footballers like Jadon Sancho and everything indicates that they will end up signing the reinforcement. And Todibo is the chosen one.

Nice were very reluctant to sell, but United’s offer will be around 60 million euros. And Barça would earn 12 million in this operation. At the Blaugrana club they are very aware of this movement because it would help a lot to have a salary limit. The Blaugrana club is working on other income such as the definitive sale of Barça Studios and they believe that there will be good news before the end of the year. In this way they want to register Vitor Roque, who will join with complete security at the end of the month.
