Barcelona boosts bid for youngster Lucas Bergvall amidst competition

Barcelona has increased their offer to sign the young Swedish star, Lucas Bergvall but they will have to compete with several clubs.

Despite the Djurgardens metronome having seemed out of reach previously, Barcelona has recently submitted a new bid for him.

When Bergvall initially captured Barcelona’s interest, reports suggested that the player inclined towards the Blaugrana, and an agreement had been reached with his agent.

However, Barcelona quickly changed their stance when confronted with Djurgardens’ €15m price tag. Udinese, Manchester United, and Juventus all threw their hats in the ring, joining the race for the player.

After receiving reports suggesting that Bergvall’s price tag might be considerably lower, Fotbolldirekt, via Sport, reports that Barcelona has increased their offer from €5m to €6.5m.

However, they still lag behind the leading offer, currently standing at €8.5m from Eintracht Frankfurt. Other clubs are also in discussions, and Djurgardens has not yet finalized a deal with any side.

Determined not to miss out on Bergvall, Barcelona has experienced the disappointment of Claudio Echeverri and Gabriel Moscardo slipping through their grasp in the past due to pricing issues.

Barcelona risks another financial setback in this transfer window, with the price tag spiraling upwards. Engaging with footballers at such a young age poses challenges, considering the lengthy journey to reach the pinnacle of the sport.

Barcelona’s surprise move for a central midfielder raises eyebrows, despite their midfield brimming with young talent.

Unless they perceive him as a potential mid-term replacement for Sergio Busquets, the move raises questions, considering their historical proficiency in producing players for that position.
