Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo is in the list, and could be headed for a move of EUR 20 million to the Premier League, says Sport.es.
Barça is now negotiating a deal with Everton, who are willing to spend 20 million on add-ons. Barcelona wants a buyback incentive but it seems almost impossible. Todibo left the club on loan to Schalke in January, which has a chance to purchase 25 million of them.
The German club is happy with the defender but the coronavirus pandemic would stop them from paying the sum required for making the move permanent.
Schalke reported to Barça a month ago and applied for an extension of the loan but the Catalan club turned it down because of Todibo’s interest.
Everton first contacted weeks before to inquire about Barça’s plans. There is a good relationship between the clubs, with past deals involving Digne, Gomes, and Mina.
The Premier League side did not give the 25 million requested but offered 20 million sets based on Todibo’s performance, with 5 million add-ons.
Todibo is open to England but would prefer to stay at Camp Nou. Barça would need to decide in the coming days. Many clubs have already been talking about Todibo. Barca is going to sell a player to the highest bidder as long as Todibo is satisfied with the proposal
Barça is likely to gain a great deal of cash on that contract. They took him to Toulouse just eighteen months ago in a deal worth about two million, winning the competition for Juventus.
