In recent days, the Catalan press announced that the young North American striker of FC Barcelona, Konrad de la Fuente (19), was leaving for Olympique de Marseille. The player playing with the reserve team blaugrana (6 goals scored in 21 matches) is supposed to be the subject of a loan with a compulsory purchase option set at € 5 million. Except that Sport reveals that negotiations between the two clubs have come to a halt.
The reason ? OM wants a loan with an option to buy, but without it being compulsory. For their part, the Blaugranas want to recover at least € 5 million (this summer or next year as part of a loan with a compulsory purchase option) thanks to their player and insert a buyout clause. Faced with this first slowdown, the two parties gave themselves a few days to reflect.
